DroneBlocks: Math with Drones
8 lessons that teach how math is an essential building block in drone applications
This is an sneak preview of the DroneBlock Math Course. The introductory pricing of $49 will give you access to the first 3 lessons of our 8 lesson course. We will launch the remaining 5 lessons over the next several weeks. The $49 introductory pricing will grant you access to all 8 lessons as they become available. We will release each new lesson as it is completed. After all 8 lessons are released the price of this course will go up to $89.
The list of lessons in the DroneBlocks Math Course are listed below. You will have free access to the first lesson so you can see the quality of content you'll be purchasing. If you haven't gone through our free DroneBlocks Introductory Course and Challenge Missions, we highly recommend you do so!
The DroneBlocks Math Course will walk through 8 lessons that teach students about the importance of math in drone applications. Every aspect of a drone from its GPS receiver, camera, remote control, and other components use math to make your drone smarter. Here are the lessons this course will cover:
Lesson 1: Measuring Distance Using a Drone Photo
Learn about photogrammetry and use DroneBlocks to take a nadir photo. From that photo you'll learn how to measure distances between two points on the earth's surface.
Lesson 2: Calculating Area Using a Drone Photo
In many applications it's important to determine the area of a field, building, lot, and other objects in the real world. This lesson will take you through the process of capturing a drone photo with DroneBlocks and learn how to calculate area.
Lesson 3: Calculating Distance Between GPS Waypoints
Learn how DroneBlocks calculates distance between GPS waypoints to determine where to send a drone during autonomous missions.
Lesson 4: Calculating Vertical Speed (coming soon)
Lesson 5: Orbit Around an Object Using a Circle Equation (coming soon)
Lesson 6: Fly a Vertical Arc Over an Object (coming soon)
Lesson 7: Calculate Speed Using GPS EXIF Data of Drone Photos (coming soon)
Lesson 8: Create a Map with Overlapping Drone Photos (coming soon)
