I am Brenton Sutherland, a grade 12 student at Dalbrae Academy, and a resident of Port Hood, Nova Scotia. In my spare time I enjoy programming, robotics, mathematics, and robotics. In the fall I will be studying Software Engineering at the University of Waterloo. The idea for this year's project emerged through discussions with UAV professionals at the 2015 CWSF in Fredricton.

City:Port Hood, NS

Abstract:A low-cost LiDAR scanner was developed that allows semi-autonomous UAVs to move out of the path of obstacles, and fully autonomous UAVs to adjust their course plan around detected obstacles. Testing was conducted in simulation and on a DJI Flamewheel F550 hexacopter. An online database was created where mapping data can be shared among UAVs.
