I am a newbie and looking for suggesting on a school project.
Project is on automation of drone where drone need to capture images of plants in a field and transfer those pictures to a PC.
Drones needs to come back to the base station by itself and start charging. Drone path can be fixed and it should capture images like twice a day or 10 times a week. All this should be done without human interaction.
this requires some AI support and needs a more complicated processor so u should use advanced board like raspberry pi.
Check out Ardupilot.
Checkout the current aviation laws on drones.

What part do you expect the arduino to play in the project?
