Using a drone to measure the wind

Gramada, by admin.

Cool research from Virginia Tech using a 3DR Solo to do wind measurement:

All multirotor drones can be used as wind sensors, providing wind profiles on demand, anywhere, with higher spatiotemporal resolution and a fraction of the cost of other methods. See the free open-access paper on how to obtain wind profiles from the drone’s dynamic response to wind-induced perturbations. The study was led by soon-to-graduate Virginia Tech
