We conduct four classroom workshop per year at venue decide by club. All other information will be given at our page UAC Events

We conduct four online workshop per year at date and time decide by club. All other information will be given at our page UAC Events. 

We organize workshop as per request of any college/university. All other information will be given at our page UAC Events. 

What is this workshop about?
By attending this workshop, you will learn to develop a drone with an autopilot system that can autonomously fly a programmed route and perform various maneuvers programmatically. The drone that you develop will have a GPS, autopilot system and live transmission to the ground station. Understanding this technology is very essential for various applications like aerial photogrammetry, 3D mapping, multispectral imaging etc.
This workshop introduces you to the technologies involved in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and the techniques involved in making a working autonomous drone. You will practically understand the basics of Quadcopter design, electronics involved, sensors, navigation, communication systems and autopilot system.
