Learning Objectives

In this course, you will be introduced to the exciting field of Unmanned Aerial Robotics (UAVs), also known as Drones and its application in particular. You will learn about their basic mechanics and control strategies and realize how they can be used in the field of agriculture resulting in saving in use of pesticide, fertilizer and seed. This will lead to climate protection and achieving SDG2030 Goal.




Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) or Drones can help farmers calculate exact land sizes, classify types of crops, perform soil mapping along with pest management and also plan their harvesting. In India, there are over 35 drone start-ups that are working to raise the technological standards and reduce the prices of agriculture drones. Drones may reduce the pesticide use on farm by 30%, water use by 90%, improve the yield by “tens of percent” and severely reduce water and soil pollution.
