ASME Students Build Drone, Participate in Student Professional Development Conference

ASME

ASME members Derek Stack, Archie Yepes, Colin Vinson, and Nick Engel all sought to participate in this year’s Student Design Competition, which challenged young engineers to design a remote-controlled, heavy-lifting hovering aircraft that can pass through gates and drop a payload on a target. The competition was designed to simulate water-bucket drops on a forest fire. Unfortunately, due to two late equipment failures, NYIT’s ASME team was unable to compete at regionals, but thanks to their perseverance and hard work, their multi-rotor machine is already stronger and better than ever before, and ready to compete at the international exposition in the fall. The ASME International Mechanical Engineering Congress Exposition is slated to take place November 11-20, 2014 in Montreal, Quebec.

NYIT’s student section of ASME has been developing their custom built, heavy-lift multi-rotor drone (pictured above) for several months now, and look forward to testing it on the playing field in November. They have built this machine thanks to the practice and research experience they were able to complete by working with three quadcopters that were donated to NYIT earlier this year.  The funds used to purchase the drones were given by SoECS alumnus Robert A Russo, who graduated from NYIT in 1969 with his B.S. in Aeronautical Technology.
