Inventory management drone is a software/hardware framework that allows employers to automate their inventory management process. This framework reduces the risk of warehouse-related injuries and replaces some tedious work. Inventory management drones are one of the cheap options in order to automate this type of work. The following work will build on top of a previously published paper in the AANAPISI Journal. The goal of this research is to upgrade the onboard computer and increase the computational capabilities of the drone. By upgrading the computer, the drone’s automation capabilities will be increased. This project will attempt to do longer flight tests and do 3d reconstruction of a mock-up “warehouse.” Lastly, the author will attempt to develop end-user GUI for ease of use.
This research was funded by UNLV’s Title III Part F Asian American and Native American Pacific Islander Serving Institution (AANAPISI) program, which is housed within UNLV’s Center for Academic Enrichment and Outreach and funded under grant (P382B160008) from the U.S. Department of Education.
