It has long been a challenge in many fields to measure atmospheric parameters in free space. These can include measurements of solid particles, radiation, gases, contamination and others. Today’s solutions often lack flexibility, UAV’s are mostly not using real-time data to adjust the monitoring process. They cannot operate under extreme weather or require highly qualified personnel. This panel discussion debates platform-independent solutions for the above-mentioned challenges and brings specific examples of how the solutions were implemented and used to solve problems in the real world. It also addresses the importance of PX4 and its contribution in creating similar projects.
