Abstract

The usefulness of drones for professional and research activities is justified by the fact that the embedded sensors and data acquisition systems convert drones in flexible and portable measurement instruments. On the other hand, the drone operation introduces sources of uncertainty and accuracy degradation often not taken into account in traditional courses on drones. This paper aims to fulfil this education lack to prepare the next generation of professionals and scientists in the critical use of this new kind of measurement instrument. To reach this goal, in the paper a course on 'Measurement for and by drones' to be held at the PhD School in Information Technology for Engineering at University of Sannio-Benevento, Italy, is presented.
