A 3 day hands on workshop on Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Building &Testing

In aviation and in space, a drone refers to an unpiloted aircraft. This revolutionary innovation is changing the game of technology & is widening the horizons with it’s unbelievable applications in smart cities. Drone applications are shooting up with each passing year and more and more people are embracing the idea of owning such devices. These unmanned aerial vehicles are now finding more practical and innovative drone uses in various domains - Health, Environment Monitoring, Delivery, Energy, Disaster Management, Safety and Mining to name a few.

  • Drones fitted with 
    • A general medical emergency kit can be flown to the location of the emergency and could cater to a wide array of situations requiring first aid. Right from transporting blood and other samples to labs, to delivering emergency medicine and equipment to victims 
    • A high-resolution camera can draw 3D map of buildings, providing details such as built-up area and number of floors. This technology also helps retrieve data from difficult-to-access areas and highly populated cities.
  • Drones enable the inspection of the infrastructure and maintaining it by clearing debris from solar panels or clearing rubbish from power lines. It also helps in the supply of critical equipment to remote locations where reachability is a challenge.
  • Drones help continuous collection of higher quality data from otherwise inaccessible locations of a selected area, looking for live changes in air quality, monitoring urban water bodies such as lakes & rivers for water levels.
  • Surveillance of municipal area using drones with an infrared camera, surveillance of large events, festivals, concerts, and sports. Security drones can help identify trespassers who intend to vandalize govt. or heritage property.
  • Drones are currently being tested and implemented mostly in open-cast mining, where they are replacing labour-intensive methods of inspection, mapping and surveying, as well as ensuring safety on the extraction site. 
  • In Agriculture, Drones can help in generating Vegetation Maps and Crop Health Maps thus providing useful actionable inputs. Drones can also help spray pesticides, fertilizers and nutrients thus solving problems of manual labour availability and health hazards that are caused by manual spraying.
