CENTRE FOR AUTONOMOUS VEHICLES (CAV)

The Centre for Autonomous Vehicles(CAV) is the gateway to a unique environment created to both facilitate and accelerate the growth of the Unmanned Air Systems (UAS) industry. Centre will be one of the few UAS research, training and development range of its kind among Indian educational institutes.

 

The Centre will enable

  • Unmanned air systems R&D such as ROV,UAVetc,.
  • Integrated unmanned air systems operating environments.
  • Expert technical and operational support.
  • Outstanding infrastructure and test facilities.
  • Development and demonstration of flight trials.

Scope

  • In addition to the capabilities , acting as the shop window of Indian UAS development, this exciting new environment will facilitate the commercialization of research. School of Aeronautical Sciences has bagged several titles and championships in prestigious international UAV competitions like

1.Aero Design Collegiate Series (S.A.E.International),
2.International Aerial Robotics Competition (AUVSI)
3.International Micro Air Vehicle Competition(IMAV)

Every year, new successful UAV designs through student projects and competitions have transformed UAV activity to its next dimension of Centre for Unmanned vehicle Systems.

Objectives

  • Here at our Centre we will conduct research into all aspects of aviation automation, with a specific focus on autonomous technologies considering wide range of commercial applications.
  • The Centre will be able to transform leading edge research concepts to flight-tested reality.
  • The technologies being explored at Centre will be integrated into civilian manned and unmanned operations, and will be implemented across a variety of sectors namely agriculture; mining and resources; emergency services; building and construction etc…
