Course Description

Drone technology, also known as unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) technology, has advanced significantly in recent years and has found applications in various fields. Drones are essentially flying robots that can be remotely controlled or operated autonomously using software-controlled flight plans or a combination of both. Here are some key aspects of drone technology:

Type of Drones

  • Fixed-Wing Drones

  • Multirotor Drones

  • Single-Rotor Helicopter Drones

Components of Drones



The drone body is the main skeleton system where all drone parts are placed. The drone body can be compared to the chassis in computers. The propellers, motors, battery, camera, and receivers fit into the fuselage and are ready to do their job. It has an “X” style design with four arms extending from the middle body.



Also called rotor or blade, drone propeller comes in various shapes, sizes, and materials. Regardless of their specific characteristics, all propellers are the basic equipment that does not allow the drone to take off. The propeller is one of the most sensitive parts of the drone and can be easily damaged as it needs to be constantly replaced or installed.


Motors and ESC (Electronic Speed Controllers)

The drone motor is the main dynamo that makes the propellers spin and provides enough thrust for flight. They convert the electrical energy stored in the battery into motion energy and enable the propellers to rotate. Motors, one of the most important parts of the drone, are very important, especially for the drone to work effectively.


Flight Controller

The drone controller is the tool for managing and directing the drone. The most important feature of the remotes is the number of channels. The number of channels should be as much as the type of command given to the drone. While 6-channel controls are mainly used in drones today, this number can increase with accessories such as cameras. A digital display on the controls is another feature that makes it easier to use



Drones, cameras, and sensors detect differences, modeling, classification, development, and changes, especially for agricultural applications. Imaging sensors such as red, green, and blue (RGB), and near-infrared, multispectral, hyperspectral, and thermal and distance sensors such as LiDAR and search-and-rescue (SAR) are widely used. RGB sensors capture the image as the human eye sees these red, green, and blue (RGB) colors, a narrow band of the electromagnetic spectrum.

Drone usage areas

Although the use and development of drones are always for military purposes, the use of drones in both commercial and other sectors is becoming widespread today. The evaluations regarding the usage areas still used in this regard and expected to become more widespread soon are summarized below.


In agricultural areas, it contributes significantly to providing data to sector stakeholders and increasing producers’ productivity by collecting data with regular land observation. Drones in spraying, fertilization, and plant damage detection applications inspect the planted crops. The use of drones in agricultural production is becoming more common daily, and it provides convenience for producers to optimize production by increasing efficiency and reducing physical load.


Depending on the increasing city population, drones are successfully used in environmental control and emergency response processes. To prevent environmental pollution, drones not only carry out projects aimed at cleaning the seas but also make an important contribution to the fight against poaching and the tracking of endangered animals.


The use of drones for medical purposes is used to transport response equipment to the scene in urban areas, to direct people to the stage with drones with cameras and audio devices, to transport equipment such as medicine and trauma kits in rural areas, or to facilitate search-and-rescue efforts.

Photography and cinema

Professional video shoots are made today using drones in commercials, TV series, and movie sets, successfully capturing specific images. It is used in the direct marketing of products and in taking aerial images to show a city, beach, or building from a bird’s eye view in advertising shoots.


Drones, becoming increasingly widespread in mapping, can map almost all terrains quickly and in three dimensions. For this purpose, LiDAR Drones with sensors provide highly successful and accurate data. LiDAR technology offers important solutions in the evaluation of agricultural products as well as the mapping of landforms
