Ferienakademie 2019 - Autonomous Drones for Sustainability

We will offer a Ferienakademie course about the topic of Autonomous Drones for Sustainability during the Ferienakademie 2019. The Ferienakademie will take place from September 22, 2019, until October 4, 2019, in the Sarntal Valley, South Tyrol, Italy.

In this course, we are going to build a prototype for an autonomous drone-based water quality management system. We will use the Sarntal water reservoir next to our hotel to collect water samples. The samples should be collected every day and flown back to the laboratory based at our hotel. The developed system will be deployed to control the water quality of Lake Nokoué, in Benin, West Africa, which regularly suffers from water pollution. We will address the following topics: Green Hydrogen, Solar Energy, Battery Types, Autonomous drone flight, Search algorithms for drone fleets, Software patterns for drones, Drone fleet coordination, Scooping Mechanism for water sampling, and Geographic Information System data.
