This course is dedicated to energy management, i.e. speed and altitude control. The various sources of drag are first described and modeled, as well as thrust origin, and evolution with speed and altitude. Using these models, we can evaluate the propulsive balance and derive important concepts like flight [...]

More than one century after the Wright brothers' first flight, the flight still defy our intuition. You will learn here how to name the different parts of the airplane and how to describe and quantify its geometry. For that, we need now to share a precise vocabulary to describe [...]

Robotics: Aerial Robotics (Coursera)

How can we create agile micro aerial vehicles that are able to operate autonomously in cluttered indoor and outdoor environments? You will gain an introduction to the mechanics of flight and the design of quadrotor flying robots and will be able to develop dynamic models, derive controllers, and synthesize [...]

Introduction to Aeronautical Engineering (edX)

Discover the fascinating world of aviation by investigating aeronautics, with a closer look at aerodynamics and flight mechanics. This course provides an overview of and introduction to the fundamentals of aeronautics, using the history of aviation as a story line.

Aerial Photography with UAV (Coursera)

The purpose of the course is to provide students with knowledge about the technology of aerial photography using unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The course objectives include: knowledge about various aircraft and payloads, the geodetic control creation, flights planning and their implementation, the main stages of data processing and application [...]
