By attending this workshop, you will learn to build your own quadcopter and develop a drone with an autopilot system that can autonomously fly a programmed route and perform various maneuvers programmatically. The drone that you develop will have a GPS, autopilot system and live transmission to the ground station. Understanding this technology is very essential for various applications like aerial photogrammetry, 3D mapping, multispectral imaging etc.
This workshop introduces you to the technologies involved in Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and the techniques involved in making a working autonomous drone. You will practically understand the basics of Quadcopter design, electronics involved, sensors, navigation, communication systems and autopilot system.

Vijayawada is in Krishna District, about 275 km from the state capital Hyderabad and is known as the business capital of Andhra Pradesh. It is spread over an area of 61 km² (urban area) with a population of 851,282 (agglomeration 1,039,518) (2001 census) and 1,025,436 (agglomeration 1,411,152) (2006 census).
How to Reach
Vijayawada is situated along the Chennai-Howrah, and Chennai-Delhi rail route, the largest railway junction of the South Central Railways, and it is well connected to state capital, Hyderabad, by rail, road and air
Jet Airways and SpiceJet connect the city with Hyderabad,Mumbai,Bangalore and Chennai. Air India connects the city with New Delhi via Hyderabad. The new entrant Air Costa has made the city as its base. It currently connect the city with Bangalore and Jaipur, with plans for increased service later.
