Autonomous Agriculture Drone

Created on 28 Oct 2018

Drone that autonomously sprays crops with water

The aim of this project is to make a drone that will autonomously spray an area defined by using 4 balloon markers. The drone will be controlled using a Raspberry Pi and the sensing of the environment will be done using a camera. The drone will be able to carry 100 mL of water and will only spray water when it is in the area defined by the balloon markers.
