They advanced to the finals, where 11 teams will compete for prizes worth a million dollars, commented Radovan Suk from FEL. For progressing to the final, they received a reward of 15 thousand dollars. However, it is a matter of knowledge.

They will be given the opportunity to participate in the research program and put the prototype into production. The roboticists from Vysok Kola on Karlov namst are the only women from outside the USA who made it to the finals. At his factory in Kansas, the researcher will first demonstrate his drone prototypes live.

In the previous two rounds, the jury evaluated only videos. The 3D Mapping Challenge / UAS 5.0 is one of the most prestigious competitions organized by the US National Institute of Standards and Technology. This branch supports the development of technologies designed for the ptrac operations of the US reserves.

A really sharp test

For us, this is a great opportunity to apply our experience in the field of developing prototype aerial robots for rescue operations and test them in that competition, said Martin Saska, head of the multi-robotic systems group at FEL VUT.

The team from the metropolis first tested the drone in the tower blocks of Karlov Square. They created a mock-up of the environment, where the flying robot operates, in a corridor on an area of ​​10 square meters. The apartment offers a number of remarkable features. For example, it contains one of the most advanced software for a fully autonomous aircraft. Safety is thus perfected, thanks to a special protective propeller.
