3. Aerial Evidence Collection

Instructions (Part I): Carefully watch the video below to learn how to use the camera feature on your drone. The video demonstrates this feature in the simulator, but the coding process is the same for the actual drone. 

Instructions (Part II): Carefully watch this video to learn how to use the camera and access pictures on an actual drone. Note that you will not be using the downward-facing mirror attachment, so you can ignore that part.

Instructions (Part III): Your supervisor in the forensics lab wants to further analyze fingerprint evidence from the crime scene, now located in the evidence collection room. Concerned about human contamination, she assigns you the task of flying your drone to the room to capture images of the fingerprints and return. To simulate this task, tape your fingerprint evidence to a wall, then program your drone to take off, fly to the evidence, capture several pictures, and return. Analyze the results and repeat until you are satisfied with the image quality. Upload your best image below, typing your first name in the “Subject” area.
