Event Description

DATA MATTER proposes a theoretical and experimental framework to develop an unmanned air vehicle system for the analysis of environmental conditions.
DATA MATTER focuses on the polluted area of Valle del Sacco in Italy. Discover how to extract data from the different level of environmental conditions, than visualize those informations in order to generate an open and resourceful database of the territory.


NOUMENA & FLONE, in collaboration with FABLAB FROSINONE and FAB LAB BARCELONA presentDATA MATTER | environmental aerial robotics workshop
The course is inspired by the investigation developed along the Sacco river by Carlo Ruggiero, pubblished on"Cattive acque" and the experimental research ran by Michela Ruggiero, co-founder of Fab Lab Frosinone. The course will take place in Frosinone, Italy and will be related to the fields of aerial robotics and data visualization. It will propose a theoretical and experimental framework to develop a database on the area around Valle del Sacco, translating data into visual outputs from the different levels of environmental conditions.
During the workshop, participants will have a first hand experience with aerial robotics, mapping and data visualization. The course will focus in several different stages, generating a dynamic and innovative workflow. Main tool of the course will be Flone, a popular open-source drone developed in Spain and already presented in several international events and exhibitions such as Fab10 and MakerFaire.
Flone is a co-operative project which explore and envision several applications that translate a basic drone into a multidisciplinary and professional tool. Flone have been already engaged to the field of art and technology, investigating social and professional practices , focusing on topography, energy performance certificates for buildings, environmental strategies of forestation, human rights and aerial photography.
During the workshop participants will develop skills of digital fabrication, electronics, programming and data management. Starting from scratch, students will learn all the assembly process of the drone, from laser cutting frame structure to the installations of motors and drivers, followed by coding the electronic boards and fly experience. You will be able to fly and controll the drone by your android smartphone with an application developed by Flone. 
On site, along the Sacco river, students will use the drone and learn strategies of data recollection, terrain mapping via smart-phones, infrared camera and other environmental sensors installed on the drone. 
In the final stage of the course, participants will adopt computational techniques ,learning how to organize and visualize data, generate a 3d environment, elaborate informative maps as a resourceful environmental information documents for the recovery of the Sacco river and it’s natural and social context. The fee for the workshop include the ownership of the drone built during the event once the course will be over.
