Automatic Routing of Surveillance Drones
Many drones have a basic ability to track and follow people or vehicles, but more complex surveillance tasks must still be manually planned and flown.
One example of such a scenario is the need to monitor what happens around an event in an urban environment where buildings obstruct the line of sight.
The focus of this master’s thesis is to investigate methods that take the capabilities of a drone into account to automatically generate a flight path that ensures that all the ground, and airspace, around an event will be covered by the sensors.
The thesis should include a prototype routing implementation in Carmenta’s geospatial technology. It is suitable for students interested in algorithms and mathematics.
