Drone algorithms developed by IIT Madras to aid in the study of how fire behaves in space stations



According to the researchers, the only way to generate microgravity (gravity that is near to zero) at the moment is to use space stations, satellites, space shuttles, sounding rockets, and drop towers, practically all of which are out of reach for most Indian educational institutions.


Drone algorithms created by researchers at the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras will aid in the study of how fire behaves in space stations, shuttles, and satellites. According to the researchers, a multirotor microgravity platform can also recreate reduced-gravity situations comparable to those found on the Moon and Mars, allowing for experimentation on Earth.


According to the researchers, the only way to generate microgravity (gravity that is near to zero) at the moment is to use space stations, satellites, space shuttles, sounding rockets, and drop towers, practically all of which are out of reach for most Indian educational institutions.


"Another approach is to simulate microgravity on Earth by using 'free-fall' missions. Microgravity can also be achieved through the free fall of sounding rockets and payloads from high altitude balloons and drop towers, according to Kedarisetty Siddhardha, a research scholar at IIT Madras' Department of Aerospace Engineering.
