Control and Data Entry in Drone Control Systems


The Department of Electromechanical Engineering at the University of Technology held an electronic workshop through free Conference Call entitled “Control and data entry in drone control systems” For the Assist Prof Dr. Saady Treid Kurdy on Tuesday 5/5/2020

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) are a category of aircrafts that can fly without the onboard presence of pilots. Unmanned aircraft systems comprise of the aircraft component, sensor payloads and a ground control site. They can be guided by onboard electronic devices or via control equipment from the earth station. When it is remotely controlled from ground it is called RPV (Remotely Piloted Vehicle) and requires reliable wireless communication for control. Dedicated control systems may be design to large UAVs, and can be mounted aboard vehicles or in trailers to enable close proximity to UAVs that are restricted by range or communication abilities.

UAVs are applied for monitoring and tactical planning. This technology is now available for employ in the emergency restraint field for assisting the crew members. UAVs are categorize according to the altitude range, endurance and weight, and support a widely range of applications involve military and commercial site applications.

The smallest classes of UAVs are often accompanied by earth-control stations composes of computers and other device that are small enough to be carried easily with the aircraft in small vehicles, aboard boats or in backpacks. UAVs that are fitted with high precision cameras can navigate around the disaster area, take photo sand permit the stuff members to implement image and structural analysis.
