Student Competitions

Unmanned Systems Canada (USC)

For the 2020 competition, USC has created a simulated BVLOS drone-based medical supply delivery. Our system will remotely retrieve the simulated medical package with a separate ground vehicle, read its contents and destination from the QR code, transport it via high-speed UAV, and deliver it to the destination tent with the ground vehicle. Our team will travel to Southport, Manitoba from May 1 – 3, 2020 to participate in this competition.

Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International (AUVSI)

UBC UAS will build a large, fast multi-rotor capable of performing autonomous flights while carrying multiple payloads for the AUVSI Student Unmanned Aircraft Systems competition. The mission is to deliver a packages to customers while avoiding obstacles like buildings. We are building a rover to be deployed from a safe altitude that autonomously navigates to customer location. Our in-house software suite will be used to create aircraft flight paths, manage imaging for mapping, and object detection. The competition will take place June 17 – 20, 2020 in Maryland, USA.
