UAV Challenge 2018 Announced

By | March 6, 2017

The UAV Challenge 2018 (Medical Express) has been announced. The full announcement and rules are at https://uavchallenge.org/medical-express/

This Challenge is an evolution of the 2016 UAV Challenge. As per the 2016 Challenge, teams still have to fly to Outback Joe and pick up a blood sample from him. This time, however, teams must also avoid static no-fly zones (hazards) during the flight between Joe and the Base site. Teams also have the option of competing for two addition prizes:

  • Type 2 Autonomy. Where there must be no interaction from the team via the GCS during the mission
  • Dynamic no-fly zone. Where the UAV will be given a stream of changing no-fly zones during the mission and must automatically re-plot it’s waypoints to stay outside there zones.

Looks to be an interesting challenge!
