Object Detection using Machine Learning for Drone Launcher used in Sea Rescuing Operations


Swedish Sea Rescue Society (SSRS) is a voluntary organization for sea rescuing operations along the Swedish coast and greater lakes. The personnel at SSRS face a multitude of different scenarios while in rescue operation, which requires different type of rescue gear and resources. SSRS and collaborating partners from industry and academia are developing a drone system which shall aid in sea rescuing operations by providing valuable data of the accident. The purpose is for the personnel to receive information on what rescue gear and other resources to bring before leaving shore.

When not in use, the plane-like drone is stored in an enclosure on the drone launching unit. The purpose of this study is to develop an object detection safety feature to prevent launching the drone into an object blocking the launch path. This can be done by development of:

  • Evaluating similar problems within current research and selecting object detection techniques
  • Obtaining real life and synthetic test and training data for training an object detection machine learning model
  • Integrating the machine learning model into the drone launcher software


We are looking for 2 master students with a background in computer engineering, engineering mathematics, engineering physics or equivalent program, who wish to conduct their thesis during the spring of 2023. Applicants shall have experience in machine learning, software development and image processing. Applicants shall also have experience from programming languages such as C++ or Python, and it is meritorious to have previous experience from or knowledge of data analysis and collection.
