2018 is going to be a big year for us, with the changes to the UAV Challenge Medical Express rules challenging us to really push our technology forward. We’re hard at work trying to develop some pretty big things for the 2018 UAV Challenge.
CanberraUAV was one of 55 teams to pass Deliverable 1 for the 2018 UAV Challenge! The next deliverable is in April 2018, where we need to specify our systems and safety in more detail. A complete list of all passing teams is available at https://uavchallenge.org/medical-express/2018-medical-express-teams/ Additonally, our Deliverable 1 report can be found at http://canberrauav.readthedocs.io/en/latest/lessons/OBC2018.html
