Course Introduction

Quadcopter, also called a Quadrotor helicopter, is a rotary-wing aircraft with four rotors. It finds applications in both civil and military domains. Its amazing maneuverability and the ease of flight in constricted locations have achieved itself a remarkable position in the aviation sector. Our program helps participants understand the concepts and use of accelerometer sensor, microcontrollers and wireless communication in designing and controlling a Quadcopter.

"The Indian automotive industry has emerged as a 'sunrise sector' in the Indian economy" - Department of Industrial Policy and Promotion (DIPP), Ministry of Commerce. April'13. With the automotive industry growing multi-fold every year, it is never a bad thought to think about securing a position in it. The program provides the participants with the much-required exposure to the concepts of Automobile Engineering and a hands-on experience to build your own RC Car replicating most of the systems present in an actual car!
