CanSat Test and Training Program- Group 1

2023-2024 Fall
Faculty Department of Project Supervisor: 
Faculty of Engineering and Natural Sciences
Number of Students: 

In this project, students will build a CanSat (satellite in a soda can!), a miniature electronical and mechanical system that collects physical data and transmits it to another electronics board. The CanSat will be released from a drone and students will collect data. While this is the major task, there will be other tasks:

  • Creating an online manual, English and Turkish, including a safety manual
  • Collecting codes in a repository (github or gitlab)
  • Troubleshooting guide (encountered problems will be noted for future groups)
  • Improving mechanical designs (reproducing or redesigning mechanical structure, drone release mechanism)

The codes are embedded using Arduino IDE (Arduino will not be used, we will use ESP microcontrollers).
