NIT Andhra Pradesh encourages students to work on drone technology
NIT Andhra Pradesh said it is working to nurture globally-competent core engineers through quality education, develop technologies in Drone Technology.
TADEPALLIGUDEM: National Institute of Technology (NIT), Andhra Pradesh organized two days skill development workshop on “Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)” between March 5 and 6 in collaboration with TiTHAN (Technology Innovation Hub on Autonomous Navigation), IIT Hyderabad and OptimusLogic.
NIT Andhra Pradesh is working to nurture globally-competent core engineers through quality education, research and innovation and develop cutting edge technologies in the areas of Drone Technology.
Addressing the inaugural event, NIT Andhra Pradesh Director CSP Rao said, “Drone Technology’ is growing at a faster rate in view of developments in edge computing recently and has potential applications in commercial, industrial, military, defence, agriculture, etc. Many Institutes and start-ups are working towards future research and development, prototyping and design testing, therefore, it becomes essential for scholars to know the basics of Drone Design looking to pursue careers in this emerging sector.”
During the workshop, the institutes’ director addressed the importance of hands-on skill development programmes in prototype development and fabrication. He thanked TiTHAN, IIT Hyderabad and Optimus Logic for two-day workshop at NIT Andhra Pradesh. He mentioned that the institute is looking forward to conducting more collaborative programs with other reputed Institutes and industry partners. The top outcomes envisaged from this two-day training include:
- Awareness on current and emerging Drone Technology for various applications
- Enhance the skillset and identify opportunities with Drone technology
- Design, Integrate, Calibrate and Testing of Drone prototype models
- Troubleshooting in Drone Technology
- Drone architecture model through 3D Printing
- Prototype demonstration and hands-on experience
The program was jointly organized by TiTHAN, IIT Hyderabad, and Optimus Logic in collaboration with the Department of Electrical Engineering, E- Yantra Club, IEEE Student Branch and Centre for Research Innovation Incubation and Consultancy (CRIIC) at Andhra Pradesh.
Describing the objectives of the workshop, GVV Sharma, IIT Hyderabad, said, “This workshop is intended to enhance the students’ skill set in new and emerging technologies and also to create an awareness on “Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGV) and Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)” applications and opportunities in future. The interdisciplinary learning approach is becoming essential to design on innovative products and the students should strengthen their skills in respective core engineering and develop real-time solutions for global problems with industry collaboration”.
NIT Andhra Pradesh thanked GVV Sharma, Associate Professor Electrical Engineering Department, IIT Hyderabad, Chandrakumar Chettiar, Managing Director and CEO, OptimusLogic, Vaddipalli Hanumanth Goud, Research staff and Thupakula Gurubalaji, Research Associate at IIT Hyderabad for their facility sharing, technical support and expertise to conduct the workshop.
