On Saturday 12 August 2017, Canberra UAV was invited to exhibit at ‘Science In Action’, the event launching Science Week in the ACT. We were busy all day answering questions from budding scientists and our flight simulator even drew in the Daleks!
CanberraUAV will start producing a bit more content on YouTube so that those of you who can’t get to the field on weekends, can get a feel for what we are up to. Here is a link to the first, in what will be a semi-regular series of updates:
Over the weekend several members (and their children) spent the day building up our next fleet or test platfrom UAVs. This included the Ranger – now fitted with a Raspberry Pi Camera for imagering tests, and a few new tailsitter UAVs.
There will be tested over coming weeks for both our imagery evaluation (Ranger) and novel VTOL fixed-wing UAVs (primarily gimballed thrust electric) research areas.
The Tools are designed to efficiently run through a large dataset of images and identify any unusual or interesting objects. These objects are then geolocated via an associated tlog file or the Exif positioning data within the images.
