June 2015: Our team of students from the faculty of aerospace and from VISL, was awarded second place in the prestigious Student Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) international competition held in Maryland, USA.
The team, under the supervision of Dror Artzi, Amit Aides and Itai Orr, won second place (out of 55 teams) in a prestigious competition held by the Association for Unmanned Vehicles Systems International (AUVSI), which took place last weekend in Maryland, USA. The international Student Unmanned Air Systems (SUAS) Competition attracts students from universities all over the world, yet most of the competitors are from the US.
The team developed two airborne systems that performed autonomous flight, target identification, aerial cargo delivery and obstacle avoidance, all while maintaining communication links to the ground station. Each aircraft was installed with advanced systems including a stabilized camera, an airborne computer image processing and communication system for controlling, monitoring and transferring images.
