Abstract/Artist Statement

The Topo Drone system is an attachable module designed for aerial devices to create maps via aerial flight. This system uses various sensors to gather point data of the surrounding surfaces during the aerial flight which will then be used to render a 2D and 3D map. This module could be attached onto any other aerial device as the system uses its own power source and does not draw any power from the aerial device. The strategy behind this module was to use a combination of various sensors that would generate meaningful and real-time data of location, pressure, and distance which would be compiled into a MATLAB program where the map would be generated. This project presents the results of the research done for every component on the system, preliminary testing of each component, building of the system, and verification of the system as a whole to provide transparency on how the Topo Drone system came to life.
