The following paper is in response to the project challenge where we
have to conceive, design and develop a “Deployable low-cost outdoor
surveillance system”. The following design solution has evolved with the
basic idea of the following challenges.
• Development of a suitable lightweight system in which a sensor is
airborne for carrying out surveillance at a minimum height of 30m and
above ,for a minimum of 2 minutes ,to do imaging of a proportionate
• Sensor should be able to detect man-sized objects in above-mentioned
• Recognizable real time video information should be transmitted to the
ground receiver point suitably located in the observation area.
The basic approach used to solve the problem was to divide the
problem in modules. The modules of the problem are shown in Figure 1. For
the fulfillment of the above challenges we propose a development of a MAV
or Miniature Aerial Vehicle which is a small UAV (Unmanned Aerial
Vehicle).The MAV will be responsible for carrying the sensor to a suitable
altitude. Considering the conditions in above challenges we propose a quad-
rotor MAV, due to its characteristics such as vertical takeo
