Award winner: Pablo Casaseca
Institution: University of the West of Scotland
Value: £22,000 (exchange grant)

Flood detection and monitoring using hyperspectral remote sensing from unmanned aerial vehicles

Academics from the University of the West of Scotland and Zhejiang University in China will collaborate in research that could significantly advance flood monitoring and prevention. The team will develop efficient, unmanned aerial vehicle-based (UAV) hyperspectral imaging technology for automatic flood monitoring and prevention. The imaging processing techniques will monitor water level changes, calculate an admissible path for a UAV to sample the sensing field efficiently, and define new protocols and communication systems for transmission of the image data. Such a system will benefit society and the wider economy.
