Principally, the drawbacks of employing drone for agriculturemonitoring includes short flight time and cannot be operated under certain weather conditions. Whereas, thesechallenges can be overcome through connecting drones with a blimp which provides better flight time andpreferable control and handling. Therefore, the farmers can remotely monitor the crops with latest technology toprovide sustainable farming, improve yield and increase overall from profitability to a great potential.Project Group MembersYesTejashwini NaraMukul SharmaShivam RaiAthul Govind PrasanthJeswin BabuMohammed Shabeer SahabathPROJECT DETAILS1) Project OverviewThe purpose of this project is to investigate how blimp infused drones could be commercially viable solution tomonitor agricultural applications.26/06/2021, 09:38https://researchethics.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/print/view/85545 Page 3 of 5Please give a description of your methodology, including any data collection and analysis methods:Please give a description of the main ethical considerations involved in the study:If your study includes Human Participants (or their data), please give a description of who will be included:If your study includes Human Participants, please give a brief description of the recruitment process, how you willensure voluntary participation, if (and how) informed consent will be obtained prior to participants taking part in thestudy, and the right of withdrawal from the research process:Please give a brief description of how, when and where the research will take place and whether there are any risksand/or benefits involved:Please specify what type of information/data will be collected/analysed and the source(s). In addition, specify if andhow you will ensure the anonymity of participants and keep information confidential:Please give details of the planned dissemination and specify if the findings from the research will be published andwhether any permission is required for this:The objectives of the study are as follows:1. To conduct research in the field of drone coupled blip applications and scouting efficiency.2. To create a business model around any such new product.3. To investigate how a blimp infused drone could be manufactured using which materials, tolls and suppliers andestimate the costs involved.4. To apply analytical tools such as Analytical Hierarchy Process and/or Quality Function Deployment/House ofQuality to test the viability of the business idea.2) MethodologyPrimary data collection will be undertaken through online surveying of the individuals in the agricultural trades.Secondary data collection will be undertaken via web research to investigate applications of agricultural drones andto develop the business case.An online survey questionnaire are as follows:1. How high will these agricultural drones fly?2. Which are the ideal weather states to fly drone above an area?3. What type of advice can farmers receive from the pictures?4. Which distances could the agricultural drones fly?5. What are the principal benefits farmers could receive from using agricultural drones?6. What are the benefits of missing smart agricultural machines and agricultural drones?7. What will be the expectations for the market in the next several years?3) Main Ethical ConsiderationsParticipation in the study will be voluntary and will not involve collecting personal or sensitive information.Responses will be treated with anonymity.4) Human ParticipantsPrimary data collection will be undertaken through online surveying of individuals in the agricultural trades.5) Recruitment and ParticipationI will be recruiting via the snowball method, using existing contacts and recommendations/referrals fromparticipants. I will provide potential participants with the participant information sheet and consent form by email.Consent will be obtained by email or (as a last resort) verbal confirmation prior to commencing with data collection.6) Risks and BenefitsThere will be no face-to-face contact and this research will take place via the internet (online survey). There are norisks beyond the ordinary risks of everyday life and using the internet. The benefit of the research will be to increaseknowledge about the potential applications of blimp infused drones to monitor agricultural challenges andunderstand the effectiveness of the agricultural remote sensing product to the farmers.7) Personal Data, Anonymity and ConfidentialityNo personal information will be collected. Participants will be asked questions related to their profession that will notbe commercially sensitive. Responses will be anonymous.8) Reporting and DisseminationNo dissemination or publishing of the research is planned.26/06/2021, 09:38https://researchethics.leedsbeckett.ac.uk/print/view/85545 Page 4 of 5Will the research take place outside of the country where you are enrolled as a student, or for staff, outside of theUK?Is the research is a collaborative project (ie, it involves more than one institution):Please specify if the project requires any other ethical approval or permissions not mentioned previously in thisapplication and how and when these will be obtained:I have read an appropriate professional or learned society code of ethical practice:For projects involving human participants, you must submit, where appropriate, the Participant InformationSheet/consent form.
