From fixed-wing to helicopters, from micro-scale to mega-scale, this workshop invites you to learn about what it takes to build and program an autonomous aerial vehicle, how they fly and how to make one yourself. We also examine curiosities, such as quadcopters, and learn how various sensors can be used to build working models of a drone’s environment, by Adrian Lauf, computer engineering and computer science.
