A drone created by students from Poornima College of Engineering (PCE) in Jaipur has been chosen as one of the top 20 in the initial stage of the National Drone Ranking Competition. This was the only team from Rajasthan to qualify for the second round of this prestigious competition. The drones were prepared by different colleges across the country and their videos were submitted.

The competition is organized by the Aviation and Space Federation for Universe (ASFU) in India, Dorotics (Drone and Robotics), BIAG, and the International Games Board.

The team, consisting of Lakhan Singh, Harshit Parmar, Kanishk Pamecha, and Anjana, developed an autonomous and GPS-enabled drone under the guidance of the Udaan Aeromodelling Club of PCE.

The drone, which weighs around one kilogram, can fly up to a height of 120 meters and can carry a weight of 200 grams.

Data from the beta flight software is fed into the flight controller and the drone automatically moves to whatever location it is given and lands back after tracking. On the basis of various parameters like controlling and functioning of the drone and response to this video on social media, these top 20 teams were selected from the entries from across the country for the second round.

Rahul Singhi – Director, Poornima Group, Dr. Mahesh Bundele (Director, PCE), Dr. Pankaj Dhemla (Vice Principal, PCE), Dr. Garima Mathur (Faculty Advisor & HOD, Department of ECE) and Dr. Payal Bansal (Faculty Coordinator, Udaan Aeromodelling Club) congratulated these students for this achievement.
