Design of a Journalist Drone is a modular dash drone that can be customized to serve the needs of journalists in the field.
The project proposes a videography platform designed to enable journalists and their audience to customize news coverage. The modular design allows journalists to build drones of all kinds, differing in weight, size, flight capability and footage quality. In the future anticipated by this project, a solo journalist arrives at a scene and chooses the number and combination of drone modules needed to best capture the scale of the event. Viewers can then log onto a website that allows them to choose the perspective they wish to view. The drones' 360 video capability allows all users to customize their view in real time.
