Many people enjoy flying a remote control plane as high in the sky as possible.
Over the recent years, with the advancement of embedded systems technologies, some commercial aircrafts are now able to fly in autopilot mode. The Research Center thus use the idea of remote control planes to introduce students into fundamental electrical knowledge, embedded systems, and programming. Students will learn to program through the process of remodeling remote control planes. We believe that activities such as building program-controlled planes can inspire students to explore the possible applications of programming and embedded technologies.
Research Center Personnel
The research center is directed by Professor Jung-Fu Tai of the Department of Information Management. Other center members are professors with related research interests and expertise, and project assistants who provide administrative and research support.
Mostly self-raised funds are used. We are currently applying for funds from research funding projects and industry-university cooperation funding programs.
The Research Center aims to provide an exchange platform that can facilitate student-teacher communication, foster students’ creativity, and trigger their interest in programming. We also formed the NCNU Aviation Club, which allows students to learn to control and program remote control aircrafts.
The purposes of the Center are twofold: 1. To inspire students to explore the possible applications of programming and embedded technology, and 2. To facilitate exchanges among faculty of all fields in order to open up new research possibilities. The Research Center uses remote control planes to introduce students into fundamental electrical knowledge, embedded systems, and programming. Students will learn to remodel and build program-controlled model planes. In so doing, we hope to create an environment in which students can enjoy learning using interesting and creative venues.
