On Monday, July 9, 2018, our Indoor Flight Arena was full of kid´s laugh. CTU Drone Academy welcomed 24 participants of the Children's University at the age of 12-15 who were acquainted with specialized departments of CTU during the second week of July.
The Drone Academy children program was prepared in cooperation with Zdeněk Svatý from the Faculty of Transport CTU and Jan Roháč from the Faculty of Electrical Engineering, CTU - Department of Measurement, Aerospace Engineering study program.
We started with a lecture on drones, their technical parameters, the possibilities of their use and misuse. Then the children practiced piloting the drones - the basic control of the drones, flying near/high the ground, flying between obstacles. Standard and miniature drones, flight simulator and FPV steering glasses were available. In parallel there was a lecture on the sensors used to control unmanned vehicles in the Aircraft Laboratory. Children were keenly interested in using of the GNSS and the sensors in unmanned vehicles flying and devised the unconventional use of drones in various situations.
