Our Objective is to Explore the creative minds in the field of Air Cushion Vehicles !

HOVERCRAFT WORKSHOP: A hovercraft, also called an air-cushion vehicle, ACV, is a craft capable of travelling at an elevated height over rough terrain. They can also move around well on land, ice, and water. They are supported by a cushion of slow moving, high-pressure air which is ejected against the surface below and contained within a “skirt”.

The workshop involves the design and fabrication of wireless hovercrafts. It will enable participants to practically understand the aerodynamics, electronics and instrumentation principles involved in hovercraft design.

WORKSHOP HIGHLIGHTS:

  • Complete model designed and fabricated by the participants from scratch.
  • Design and Fabrication competitions.
  • Practical knowledge gained from the program will help participants to take up B.tech/M.tech projects easily.
  • Good multimedia content to help students grasp the content easily.
