Create an app that will enable small drone operators to know more about specific weather parameters, local terrain and no fly zones within a five-mile radius of their GPS location.
•Many drones face the risks of being destroyed or lost due to inadequate safety measures implemented in them.
Our goal was to create an app that will allow drones to be safely operated anywhere in the world.
We thought to make drones smarter by relying on data from different sensors and APIs to keep themselves safe from being destroyed or going into no-flying zones.
There are 2 main modules: The drone and the operator
There are 2 apps that completely simulate the drone, one is on Unity game engine, and the other is on an Android device to make use of the GPS, accelerometer & gyroscope sensors.
The operator is a Java server that periodically receives the GPS coordinates of the drone and fetches the weather and local no-fly zones around it.
