Pterodactylus (“winged finger”) is an extinct flying reptile genus of pterosaurs. It is currently thought to contain only a single species, Pterodactylus antiquus, the first pterosaur species to be named and identified as a flying reptile..
Monitoring UAV for contaminated areas
Teroda is a project in development for the construction of an open source mapping drone to be deployed in the field for reach high contaminated areas were humans can not. Will be equipped with an IR camera (Runcam OWL) for nigh vision and a overhead vertival camera for the mapping of the overflight areas. Te power of the motors and the tiny frame makes the Teroda prototype the perfect complemtnary tool for investigating environmental concerns.
With the Teroda project our main goal is to facilitate to the citizenship a tool of surveillance and control of the contaminated areas that affect them directly and to provide an accesible tool, easy to build and economic for the anticipation to disasters in the environment.
