Abstract

Contactless and wireless scanning of objects behind surfaces or walls have much attention these days. This research paper presents scanning of objects for detection using only one transceiver mounted on a UAV along with smartphone used for mirroring the results for remote monitoring. Two advantages are gained using this setup: (i) the wide coverage area due to UAV; (ii) the remote monitoring of detected objects in 3-D with location. A working prototype is built using ‘Walabot” as a sensing device mounted on “Bwine F7GB2” UAV for experimental detection of static or moving objects in 3-D behind walls and various surfaces for emergency applications, especially in high rise buildings. Results from extensive experiments are presented to demonstrate the usefulness of this setup.
