1. Principles and practices

This week I worked on defining my final project idea and started to getting used to the documentation process.

Drone HotSpot Detection


Build a Quadcopter that can make a 2D mapping, measuring the temperature of a Solar Panel to detect Hot Spot.

What are HotSpots

Hot spots are areas of elevated temperature affecting only part of the solar panel. They are a result of a localized decrease in efficiency, which results in lower power output and an acceleration of the materials degradation in the affected area.

A quadcopter built around the Satshakit flight controller. It is designed to be simple and cheap as much as possible
