Abstract

This past semester I created an attachment for a Tello drone. Specifically, so elements such as sensors, microcomputers (Arduino), or even a small camera could be mounted to the underside of the device. I was tasked by my professor Michael Leczinsky, to make the attachment for the opening of the UAlbany Drone Lab. Currently, the attachment to the drone is a proof of concept. To create attachment, I measured various dimensions of the drone itself, and then after, I utilized a popular CAD software (Fusion 360) to create it. Next, I initially printed on my 3D printer and in later versions, I used the 3D printers in the UAlbany Makerspace. Thus far, I have executed ten iterations of the attachment. Each iteration included changes such as design and weight changes. My next plans for the attachment are to add an Arduino nano and various sensors to record temperature and humidity data. I plan to gather the data recorded and compare it to recorded local conditions. This information could be shared with local radio and television stations for their weather gathering operations.
