In August 2017 the next RobotChallenge will take place outside of Europe for the first time. The globally largest challenge of its kind attracted last year a total of 645 participating robots from 39 countries that competed in 13 disciplines. Since 2004 teams from all around the globe have proven their know-how up in the air as well as on the ground in this competition.
In the context of the international RobotChallenge we participate in the AirRace with a drone conceptualized and built by our team of students from a number of different branches of studies working interdisciplinary. The task holds of a course, consisting of two columns, that has to be completed as many times as possible by an autonomously flying drone within the time-frame of ten minutes. In 2016 a German team won first place – so there’s a title to defend.
