Land Drone Group 8

Project Summary

Border integrity is currently one of our nation’s top security problems. The border between the USA and Canada is the largest land border in the world, and with such a large border, it is impractical and inefficient to use manpower to patrol it. An autonomous drone could be a cost-effective, superior solution. Our UMaine Senior Capstone Design team is going to create a small, lightweight drone that will be able to patrol difficult terrain like snow, ice, mud, and bodies of water. Our drone will be capable of moving from point to point by having GPS coordinates programmed into its control system, capturing high quality video and acoustic recordings in the process.
