The objective of this final year project is to research and build an Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) for terrain mapping using basic sensing equipment, to use in the future for area such as rescue and recce purposes. UAV is currently on a high demand due to the fact that it operates remotely without the need for the pilot to be physically inside operating. Hence, it would be necessary to further explore on the UAV capabilities to maximize the use of it. In this project, it will be for terrain mapping. UAV Terrain mapping enables tracking, surveying and measuring of terrains at deserted places such as mountainous areas. Few basic components were used during the experiment to test out the different outcome to map out the different terrains which will be shown below. In conclusion, terrain mapping UAV will be a much help in the future for military use as well as recce purposes.
