The objective of this project is to design and implement a low cost FPV Flying UAV suitable for generating Acoustic and Image data to verify and validate the different types of algorithms developed by the researchers and Scientists working on UAVs and MAVs. The MIT Chennai team developed an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle System, providing the capability to support an 800 grams remote sensing payload. The system architecture utilizes wireless communications for manual flight control, gathering sensor information’s and real-time vision guidance using long range video telemetry. Together these components provide the necessary information for the pilot to successfully complete the mission objectives. Also MIT Chennai team offer services for characterization of design with open loop control and flight evaluation of the UAV test bed provided by NAL.
