Drone technologies have wide spread usage in day-to-day life. Present program is intended to provide theoretical and practical perspectives with hands-on training in the updated concepts of drone and unmanned aerial systems. Being a center for aeromechanics theme, NIT Rourkela is hosting this program for the benefit of interested participants to enhance their knowledge in this area. The program aims at a progressive understanding of design, development, analysis, optimization and control of unmanned aerial systems with planned lecture/practical sessions.

Topics to be covered:

Introduction to drones: Components of Drones & How to Fly Drones. Drone Vision, Machine Learning algorithms and basics: Classification of drone images. Fundamentals of UAS Communication. Aeromechanics of quadrotors, fixed-wing vehicles, hybrid vehicles, Use of LabVIEW and Simulink for drone analysis and optimization, Assembly and programming, Calibration principles before flying. Simple cascaded control schemes for drone flying.
