Quad Copter Designed by Electronics and Communication Engineering Students.
The students of Electronics and Communication Department of Global Institutes Amritsar
achieved another milestone by building a Quad Copter. This Quad Copter is designed
and developed by fourth year students (Vaibhav Singh, Talwinder Singh, Varun Kumar,
Rishabh Singh, Pankaj Kumar ) under the guidance of Er. Harmandeep Singh Sangha
Assistant Professor in ECE department. It has four arms and four pitch propellers
set in a particular configuration. The major components used are Brushless Motors,
Fiber made Propellers, Electronic Speed Controller, Gyro etc. The students focused
more on the stability and achievable height of this Quad copter. They worked day
and night and came up with a Quad Copter which is very much stable and can reach
up to a height of 600 meters. This Quad copter not only proved its stability and
height but also have a remarkable lifting power. It can lift up to 1.5 KG weight
and fly easily. Its amazing maneuverability and the ease to fly in constricted locations
can achieve itself a remarkable position in the aviation sector. It is the result
of effective teaching in the department which increased the capability to design
such type of projects that are possible only if the basic concepts and use of accelerometer
sensor, microcontrollers, and wireless communication are known to students .According
to students this Quad copter can be used for Search and Rescue, Code enforcement/Inspection,
Emergency Management and Minor Industrial lifting. The Quad copter had its successful
test flight in the Global Institute Campus. Students are very happy and thankful
to the Management of Global Institutes for the funds and providing all the necessary

where they sprung up.”
With the same idea came to our institute Dr. Sudarshan Iyengar,Assistant Professor
at IIT Ropar who is a PhD in computer science from CSA department, IISC Bangaluru.
Enlighten students about the “Joy of computing and motivating them to bag them best
job careers. He made it very clear how human mind gets swayed away listening to
their surroundings. His favorites Quote-99% of what people say is 100% wrong 100%of
what neighbours, relatives, friends say is 200% wrong inspired us to follow “Insist
on yourself, never imitate”
Our students of Electronics and Communications Department of 3rd year had participated

between a number of light sources of similar intensity kept inside an isolated room
(Arena) and turn each one off.
University Roll number
Since the event LUMOS had 3 rounds and our students had successfully completed the
1st qualifying round of the event with maximum appreciation for their robot designing
with aerodynamic shapes.
About Project: Their project was completely based on embedded system as they had
used 8051 µcontroller . They had used LDR sensors which give the output to controller
and according to the programming logic they had set , the bot performs its function.
