Abstract:
    This is a UAV which will control its flight completely by itself avoiding collisions and finding new paths to complete the given task. Task planned is collecting data to model any environment.
What is the unmet need in society that your idea will fulfill ?
    Currently, marketed drones depend on human beings to be controlled. we will remove the human dependency and let the drone fly by itself while human can only enjoy the task drone is performing. This will take aerial tasks to future and the way we use drones will change completely.
Who needs it ? How many would benefit ?
   From hobbyists to professionals, this can be used everywhere. Professional studying places need assistance to model their subjects and this product will help them. Military needs unmanned intelligent equipment to assist them in combats and pre-combat surveys. This product is targeted to benefit them
How will the solution works
    The workflow will be: • Sensing surroundings and identifying collisions around the UAV by depth sensor array system integrated with Raspberry Pi 3. • Then the Pi 3 will be integrated with the Flight Controller APM 2.8 which will be stopping the drone near collisions. • GPS integration with collision avoidance system will make possible the re-routing of the drone to new path avoiding the collisions in the way. • Indoor autonomous flights using Visual Positioning System which will be designed.
Who are your competitors ? How is your solution different
    Drones research is what informally said to be a "Hot Topic" currently. There maybe many researchers around the globe who are our competitors.
