Paper Abstract

The technology of unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) is becoming increasingly popular and used on daily basis. In the paper, the analysis of their use possibilities for the scope of engineering and environmental protection is shown. Moreover, current research, drone applications and measuring systems which use sensors for low particulates matter emission and gases measurements are presented. Next, an experiment with a chosen UAV with a mounted dedicated meter is shown. The meter (which consist of COTS elements) transmits data to a PC for processing. During the experiment the meter was used for air pollution measurements on different altitudes above a wastewater treatment plant. Basing on the results, particular solutions for the use of UAVs in engineering and environment protection were proposed.
