Sobre este curso

Are you interested in learning about drones, be it casual or in-depth? You can use this course to gain insight into the basic elements of commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) drone systems used in civilian missions and into Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) regulations.

This course introduces unmanned aerial systems (UAS) including drones and autonomous unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) with sensors including those for obstacle avoidance, other instruments, and payloads that rely on complex algorithms and have various uses.

No previous knowledge of drones, flying systems, autonomous technology, or flying experience is required. Join us as you start your drone journey.

Taught by instructors with decades of experience in drone technology applications in combat and civilian operations, systems design, and emergency management planning, this course will equip analysts and operational experts with the technical and planning knowledge for emergency planning and other applications.

Lo que aprenderás

DRO1.1x Fundamentals of Drones and Autonomous Systems:

  • Classification of drones or unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) with a focus on technology infusion (sensors, platforms, navigation, power source, command and control, range, altitude, speed, wide area surveillance)
  • Classification of drones according to use such as aerial photography, real estate sales, recreation, public events, law enforcement surveillance, border enforcement, and maritime drug interdiction.
  • Examination of commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) and commercial research and development ( R&D) technologies.
  • A systems view of drones and the types of hardware and software used for data collection, storage, and analytical requirements.
  • Systems life cycle with needs assessment, goals/ objectives, requirements, testing and training, data analytics, and mission compliance.
  • Federal government airspace policy, regulations, and compliance including beyond-visual-line-of-sight (BVLOS) drone operations, a comparison of U.S. and international regulations.
  • Risk factors, the ethical use of drones, and counter-UAS technologies including cyber and physical threats to UAS.
  • Emerging technologies being integrated into the drone market including semi-autonomous and autonomous systems that will enable communications relay, crop sensing and coordinated swarms in support of emergency response mission.
  • Future capabilities and uses of UAS, including critical technologies such as artificial intelligence (AI), machine learning, the internet of things (IoT,) data analytics and fifth generation (5G) mobile telephone service.

Lamentablemente, las personas de uno o más de los siguientes países o regiones no podrán registrarse para este curso: Irán, Cuba y la región de Crimea en Ucrania. Si bien edX consiguió licencias de la Oficina de Control de Activos Extranjeros de los EE. UU. (U.S. Office of Foreign Assets Control, OFAC) para ofrecer nuestros cursos a personas en estos países y regiones, las licencias que hemos recibido no son lo suficientemente amplias como para permitirnos dictar este curso en todas las ubicaciones. edX lamenta profundamente que las sanciones estadounidenses impidan que ofrezcamos todos nuestros cursos a cualquier persona, sin importar dónde viva.
