Drones on Sexton field

Students in the COS Independent Work Seminar entitled “These Aren’t The Drones You Are Looking For: Mitigating the Privacy and Security Implications of Drones” left the classroom to get out and about on Sexton field on a beautiful spring morning. The order of the day was to test out a host of Parrot AR Drones in an open flying environment.

Students also worked on testing out their semester-long individual projects involving actions such as controlling the drone with a keyboard, pinging a drone to get its identity, and tracking a drone using a lightweight Android phone mounted to the drone.
