Lake-Shore Monitoring

View Larger Map

The goal of this project is to monitor the shore of the Lake Symphonie in Metz, France with high-frequency over a significant time scale, using our Kingfisher platform. From these dataset, it will be possible to build an history of geo-referenced changes. This project is a stepping stone towards the deployment of the Kingfisher in more complex or more relevant missions. This will let us develop the autonomy component required for any real mission, test them in real scenarios and make sure their robustness level is satisfactory.
