Drones for Foraging is a design project that explores the use of DIY and hobbyist drones in support of urban foraging. Through this project we are developing use-cases; prototyping software and user interfaces for drone navigation; exploring the use of open technologies for image capture and analysis; and creating instructional materials to assist foragers in the use of open technologies for remote sensing and imaging. The underlying motivation for this project is to use design as a means of investigating future practices and to provide the basis for near-term open innovation with DIY and hobbyist drones.
