What you'll learn
This course will introduce you to the world of drones and its applications. We will explore the basic concepts of flight, including how to use a controller and a drone, how to fly indoors and outdoors, as well as how to set up obstacle avoidance. We will also explore practical flight demonstrations, including simple person tracking with AI, way point mapping missions and aerial videography.
External industry guests will make this workshop immersive and innovative. The sessions within the course will incorporate real-world sustainability case studies, interactive segments and a lot of live drone teaching with practical feedback from industry professionals.
The delivery of the course will be hybrid, with some workshop segments offered in different alternate formats incl. in-app screen recordings, immersive 360-videos, and behind-the-scenes footage – giving students the chance to observe from different viewing angles and perspectives (trainer vs. drone)..
We discover and understand a practical overview of both drone hardware (predominantly with an airborne DJI Mini drone family with some bigger drones on site too) and software to fly them as well as post-flight AI analysis and editing software.
We continue exploring the basic concepts of flight, including how to use a controller and a drone, how to fly indoors and outdoors, as well as how to set up obstacle avoidance.
We talk about real-life case studies and flying several field missions (subject to local flying conditions/FRZ/weather on the day).
We discover and understand practical flight demonstrations, incl. Simple person-/ object-tracking with Ai, Way-point mapping missions and Aerial videography/photography.
We introduce the concept of implementing drone technology in business workflow.
We explore and discuss business-oriented drone applications including Infrastructure inspection, Surveying & Geospatial mapping for nature conservation and greener construction purposes.
We conclude this course by looking at future trends and challenges in the field of drones as well as potential career opportunities that can be explored after completing this course.
