Flying Your Mini-drone with Python and ChatGPT (For Students)

Workshop Details

Workshop Description

Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as ‘drones’, are aircraft piloted remotely by an operator.  A drone is a way to teach real-world examples of coding in action, demonstrating principles of flight and physics.  Therefore, drones have been helpful in organising and developing STEM/STEAM activities.

In this workshop, you will learn how to fly an educational drone (DJI RoboMaster TT).  You can have opportunities to learn Python by programming drones to design flying trajectories and accomplish autonomous flying missions. Furthermore, you will learn to apply ChatGPT for programming, enhancing your drone’s capabilities to understand and execute natural language commands. This unique combination of Python scripting and AI-powered conversation creates a new dimension in drone interaction and functionality.
