A scientific workshop entitled “Introduction to Remote Control Aircraft Technology: The Impact of Artificial Intelligence and Networks”
Under the auspices of the College of Computer and Information Technology, a distinguished scientific workshop was held on Monday, October 30, 2023, entitled “Introduction to Remote Control Aircraft Technology: The Impact of Artificial Intelligence and Networks.” This workshop was organized by the Computing Technology Club (CTC) under the supervision of the Computer Science Department at the college, and it is one of the scientific student activities that the university seeks to enhance to support learning and interaction with modern technology.
The workshop was presented by student Khaled Ammoura, who specializes in the field of remote control aircraft and works at Sager Drones. The workshop attracted great interest from students and faculty members alike, in the presence of Professor Dr. Mona Abudlo, Vice President of the University, and Professor Dr. Mounir Bani Yassin, Dean of the College of Computer and Information Technology, Professor Dr. Raed Shatnawi, Deputy Dean of the College and Head of the Software Engineering Department, and Dr. Malak Abdullah, Head of the Computer Science Department, along with the representative of the Crown Prince Foundation in Irbid, Moatasem Shakhatra.
Many exciting topics were discussed in this workshop, including the definition and importance of drones, an explanation of the main parts of drones, and an introduction to drones in FPV racing. It was also discussed how fixed wings and sails are started and what their main control surfaces are. The types of flight controllers and how artificial intelligence technology is used in this context were highlighted. It also talked about the software used to program drones, and how networking and clustering applications are in this field.
At the conclusion of the workshop, Dr. Mona Abudlo praised the importance of this event and encouraged students to actively participate in university activities, stressing its great role in enhancing learning and activating knowledge. Dr. Mounir Bani Yassin also stressed the college’s continuous support for student activities and the importance of them following up on and adopting modern technology.
