Drone Summer School

SDU UAS Center offers an annual Drone Summer School with lots of hands-on building and flying drones in our labs at HCA Airport.

Drones for Computer Vision Applications

Summer School 5-16th of August, 2024:

This course will teach you how to construct and fly drones for real-world applications based on computer vision. You will work in teams of 3 students on lab exercises in drone hardware and software, computer vision algorithms, drone operations, and ethics. This leads to a mini project where you construct a multirotor drone and a camera payload, fly the drone outdoors at the nearby national UAS Denmark Test Center, and then use your computer vision algorithms to post-process the recorded video footage. You will also get presentations of state-of-the-art drone research and innovation.

What will you do...

  • Build and fly a multirotor drone
  • Create a camera payload
  • Fly your drone at HCA Airport
  • Process videos using computer vision algorithms
  • Learn about drone ethics
  • Work in teams on a drone project.

The 2024 Drone Summer School is linked to the EU project WildDrone.

Join us for...

  • A hands-on approach to drone engineering
  • A fun and informal learning environment
  • Work together with drone researchers
  • Expanding your professional drone network
  • Visiting the home of robotics in Odense, Denmark
  • Social events with international students
