Drone Flight Path Planning

Drone Flight Path Planning (SoSe 2019, WiSe 2020/21, SoSe 2021)

Drones have recently be applied more and more in the inspection of infrastructure. This project explores possibilities and approaches for efficient and complete mission planning.

  • Project goals
    • Compute efficient flight paths for unmanned aircraft systems (UAS)
    • Guarantee stereoscopic overlapping and full coverage of the building
    • Implement optimization-based method

  • Required:
    • Profound foundations in math and optimization
    • Good programming skills (Python, C++)
    • Motivation to work in a team and present results

  • Helpful:
    • Experiences with 3D geometry and polygon meshes
    • Course: Photogrammetric computer vision
