MathWorks Minidrone Competition
Challenge yourself to program (from home) a Minidrone to fly over a certain path and land on a specific point using image processing, optimisation and control techniques!
There will be two rounds of competition:
- Simulation Round - Use Model-Based Design workflows in Simulink to create a simulation model to complete certain tasks with a Minidrone. Last date of applications is 6th July. We provide a self-contained simulation environment, so participants can work on this from home.
- Hardware Deployment Round - Top teams with qualifying models will be invited to a live competition to deploy their Simulink model onto the PARROT Mambo Minidrone.
