Automated Control of a 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 types 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 continue the development of automating the control sequences of the drone launcher. This can be done by development of:

  • Integration of weather data to select an appropriate launch direction.
  • Architecture
  • Evaluation of embedded motor controller
  • Automated test cases verifying behavior of the system and/or its components.
  • Integration of the test system into the existing Continuous Integration pipeline.

Development of the control system will require a broad mix of competences ranging from electrical engineering and electronics to software.


We are looking for 2 students with a background in mechatronics or electrical engineering, or equivalent program, who wish to conduct their thesis during the spring of 2024. Applicants shall have experience in electrical engineering, software development and an interest in learning more about test automation. 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 Continuous Integration, Delivery or Deployment, Jenkins, Git, Test Automation and Frontend development.
