Autonomous systems such as self-driving cars, robots, and drones are being used today in a wide range of applications, from search and rescue to smart farming, from package delivery to the future of mobility. In this section, you will design and validate an engineering solution to enable a novel application based on an autonomous drone using the AirSim engine drone simulator. You will:
Implement a flight controller based on knowledge of electronics and using Python (no prior coding experience required)
Carry out an engineering project from conceptualization to design, from implementation to validation, and from team work to project management
Acquire soft skills such as literature survey and self-learning
Propose a novel application of autonomous drone; develop and validate a flight controller for the drone to enable your proposed application.
Experiential learning of key concepts of sensors, feedback control, microprocessors, signal processing, and drone simulator for final project
