4.13 Conclusion

The tethered flight project is very diverse and had to be worked out from scratch because there were no interim results from the previous semesters. This situation offers many design options, but is also a challenge due to the many tasks and small group size. Since the areas of mechanics, electrical engineering and computer science are part of the work, there is the opportunity to gain experience in all disciplines and at their interfaces. In addition, the production of the 3D printed parts can be used to gain deeper knowledge of this manufacturing technology.

This project allowed us to learn about technical aspects of systems such as energy efficiency. By creating a first functional system to control the length of the rope and then developing a second system to continuously power the drone, we were able to develop our knowledge in many areas of mechatronics.

In summary, it can be said that the project is a good opportunity to further develop your own knowledge in the university environment and to work in an international project group.
