Abstract

Nowadays, there is a growing interest to use drones professionally in telecommunications and industrial environments. Drones are a rapidly evolving technology with potential for different surveying and measurement purposes. Drones are able to perform surveying tasks while flying in the air quickly and inexpensively. The recent developments on the field of technology and the potential applications of drones result in an increasingly widespread use. The objective of this thesis was to research if a drone based measurement system radio frequency signal exposure assessment it is a feasible concept. The present project includes the search of the necessary components (embedded-systems computer and electronic components), the design and implementation of the electronic circuit, the programming of the software needed for the experiments, the performance of experiments with the developed system and the analysis of the data obtained. The research showed that a drone based measurement system for radio frequency is fit for this purpose. The system can produce accurate and timely results, being capable of replacing more traditional measurement methods that requires large amounts of time, effort and money. El presente trabajo final de grado denominado "Diseño de un sistema de medición de senales GSM mediante drones", fue realizado por Álvaro Zornoza Uña, estudiante del Grado en Ingeniería Electrónica Industrial y Automática en la Universidad Politécnica de Madrid, durante un intercambio Erasmus + en la Kaunas University of Technology de Lituania durante el segundo cuatrimeste de 2017.
