This project explores the use of available motion and positioning sensors to develop an automated control system for an existing aerial platform in order to conduct surveillance without the need of a human operator.

Proposed Solution:

An existing remote control quadrotor will be used for the aerial surveillance platform. While an inexpensive, yet readily available, GPS receiver as well as an accelerometer, barometer, magnetometer, gyroscope, and sonic range finder will be used to guide the microcontroller-driven autopilot on a predetermined track. This quadrotor will also carry a CCD camera and wireless transmitter to send the surveillance data to the user in real time.
