WORKSHOP | brief


The usage of drones has become a common practice today, with applications in several sectors, from leisure to professional services such security, photogrammetry, environmental mapping and tourism. N.E.RO. technology focusses on data collection and the translation of diverse environmental conditions into useful and accessible information and resources. During this event, we will explain the fabrication process and assembly of the first version of the N.E.RO drone. This live presentation will give participants the opportunity to interact with drone technology, from mechanical frame design to electronic assembly.
