A quadcopter, also called a quadrotor helicopter or quadrotor, is a multirotor helicopter that is lifted and propelled by four rotors. Quadcopters are classified as rotorcraft, as opposed to fixed-wing aircraft, because their lift is generated by a set of rotors. Quadcopters generally use two pairs of identical fixed pitched propellers; two clockwise and two counter-clockwise. These use independent variation of the speed of each rotor to achieve control. By changing the speed of each rotor it is possible to specifically generate a desired total thrust; to locate for the centre of thrust both laterally and longitudinally; and to create a desired total torque, or turning force.Its amazing maneuverability and the ease to fly in constricted locations have achieved itself a remarkable position in the aviation sector.
Workshop on Quadcopter: It is a 2 day workshop which explored the creation of Quadcopter using Arduino: control of motors, motion and behaviors which help participants understand the concepts and use of Gyro/accelerometer sensor, microcontrollers and wireless communication in designing and controlling them with Arduino.
Exposure to Robotics, Embedded Systems, Arduino programming and sensors.
Interfacing and controlling various devices like LED, buzzer, motors, sensors,LCD with Arduino.
Exposure to Multi Rotor Vehicles & Quadcopter dynamics.
Hands-On experience in controlling BLDC motors and sensors like Acclerometer/Gyro sensors.
Benefits of attending workshop:
Learn & interact with our experienced Industry Experts
Understand the dynamics in Quadcopter
Learn to Build your own Quadcopter and play with it using RF Remote control.
One take-away kit for a team consisting of 3 to 4 members.
All participants will be given a certificate of participation
At the end of this workshop, a small competition will be organized among the participating students and winners will be awarded with a ‘Certificate of Excellence’.
Eligibility:All Students from B-Tech, BE, B.Sc, MSc can attend this workshop.
Duration:It is a workshop of duration 14hrs. We require 2 consecutive days to conduct this workshop, each day of 7 hours duration.Trainer Kit: Highly accurate and standard kit content made also keeping the college Academic Projects in mind. Numerous applications can be performed on given standard kit.
