Unmanned Systems Canada - Student Competition

Canada

The Competition

The annual Unmanned Systems Canada Student Competition presents post-secondary student teams from throughout Canada with real-world industrial scenarios that could benefit considerably from the use of unmanned aircraft. This year, the scenario is focused around a simulated railway catastrophe in a remote Canadian village. Participating teams are challenged to assist disaster response authorities by performing a rapid aerial survey of the incident area using purpose-built unmanned aircraft. In addition to locating any persons requiring emergency medical care, this aerial survey will provide critical information for cleanup resource allocation without putting new lives in danger.
