Quad Copter

Quadcopter (Quad represents “four” and Copter comes from “helicopter”) is basically a robot which can be used for aerial applications. It is developed using simple propeller mechanism with electronics components for real-world applications. It comprises of ICs, Microcontrollers, sensors, motors, flight gears and other integrated components. With the workshop the participants will develop a quadcopter from the scratch with the understanding of various engineering concepts in making Unmanned Aerial Vehicle.
