UTeM Designs Wireless Computerised Helicopter Control System - REF MALAYSIAKINI



KUALA LUMPUR, Oct 9 - The Electrical Engineering Faculty of Universiti Teknikal Melaka (UTeM) has designed a computerised wireless helicopter control system using remote control.

"The helicopter control unit was developed using graphical user interface (GUI) and the Visual Basics software. GUI is connected using wireless camera to transfer the image directly for analysis," Deputy Vice Chancellor (Research and Innovation) Datuk Prof Madya Dr Abu Bakar Mohd Diah said in statement here today.

The project named "Design and Implementation of Computerised Helicopter Control System" was developed by Nor Sarizan M. Youb, Alias Khamis, Hairol Nizam Mohd Shah, M. Herman Jamaluddin and Hyreil Anuar Kasdirin.

The GUI comprised a video display and helicopter control buttons while the wireless camera was placed under the body to capture images of areas covered.

Prof Abu Bakar said the control buttons next to the video display would be used to control the helicopter's movement whether to ascend, descend, move to the right or left.

The system's advantage was its ability to interact between man and machine from a distance making it essential for monitoring purposes.

"Applications that can be linked include security monitoring by enforcement authorities. It can also be useful in agriculture," he said.

The project won the silver medal at the 19th International Invention, Innovation and Technology Exhibition (ITEX 2008) at the Kuala Lumpur Convention Centre (KLCC) in May.

It would be representing UTeM at the British Invention Show (BIS 2008) in Hertfordshire, United Kingdom from Oct 15-18.
