The project finality is to redesign and adapt a commercial drone for rescue operations. Modifications will include flight control and energy management.Main objectives of the project are: - to selec/design suitable parts and components to increase flight autonomy. Solar PV cells and corresponding controllers are considered - to study and program an algorithm for energy management - to adapt control flight to include programmed trajectories and adaptive behaviour - to built up a prototype from existing drone parts- to perform the experimental validation
