Land Drone Team 5

WLBZ News Coverage of UMaine Land Drone Competition

The purpose of our UMaine senior project design team is to build an autonomous land vehicle. The land drone is an autonomous vehicle that can travel to any known GPS coordinates. It is able to avoid and/or traverse any obstacles and collect video and acoustic data at each coordinate. The use of the land drone would be to monitor treacherous borders such as between Maine and Canada while recording any data along them. With these drones, borders such as these can be better monitored and maintained for the convenience of both countries involved.
