Today, drones are getting more common in every part of human life. Their potential in usage for scientific purposes is encouraging scientists . The data environmental sci entists need are often gathered at the field. Colossal study area may cause trouble by means of time and effort . With intent to speed up and facilitate the field work, drones get into use. In the present study, a thermal camera mounted drone was used with the objective to determine the locations and measure water temperature of a spring grou p that creates a 2 km long river. 3 flights at different altitudes and dates were made. Flights at lower altitudes perfectly revealed the spring locations but had a higher chance to end up with blurred images . However, the measurement accuracy of the thermal camera is n enough for a study which needs high precision .

Revisiting Slotted ALOHA: Density Adaptation in FANETs
Eroglu, Alperen; Onur, Ertan (2021-11-01)
Unmanned aerial vehicles have been widely used in many areas of life. They communicate with each other or infrastructure to provide ubiquitous coverage or assist cellular and sensor networks. They construct flying ad hoc networks. One of the most significant problems in such networks is communication among them over a shared medium. Using random channel access techniques is a useful solution. Another important problem is that the variations in the density of these networks impact the quality of service and ...
Vehicle routing for aerial surveillance with a homogeneous fleet
Tarakçı, Koray; Karasakal, Esra; Karasakal, Orhan; Department of Industrial Engineering (2021-12-10)
In this study, we develop models and solution approaches for planning the surveillance mission of a homogeneous fleet of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Predefined areas are to be observed while satisfying a minimum probability of target detection. Areas are assumed to be rectangular and discrete. UAVs with electro-optical sensors take off from a base and fly through predefined routes. The endurance of UAVs is limited by the maximum flight distance. The proposed models minimize the total travel distance of...
Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Domain: Areas of Research
Demir, Kadir Alpaslan; Cicibas, Halil; ARICA, NAFİZ (2015-07-01)
Unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) domain has seen rapid developments in recent years. As the number of UAVs increases and as the missions involving UAVs vary, new research issues surface. An overview of the existing research areas in the UAV domain has been presented including the nature of the work categorised under different groups. These research areas are divided into two main streams: Technological and operational research areas. The research areas in technology are divided into onboard and ground techno...

Vision-Based Detection and Distance Estimation of Micro Unmanned Aerial Vehicles
Gökçe, Fatih; Üçoluk, Göktürk; Şahin, Erol; Kalkan, Sinan (MDPI, ST ALBAN-ANLAGE 66, CH-4052 BASEL, SWITZERLAND, 2015-9)
Detection and distance estimation of micro unmanned aerial vehicles (mUAVs) is crucial for (i) the detection of intruder mUAVs in protected environments; (ii) sense and avoid purposes on mUAVs or on other aerial vehicles and (iii) multi-mUAV control scenarios, such as environmental monitoring, surveillance and exploration. In this article, we evaluate vision algorithms as alternatives for detection and distance estimation of mUAVs, since other sensing modalities entail certain limitations on the environment...
