Scientists working on the Eagle.One project competed in the second instance of the prestige biennial competition held by Mohamed Bin Zayed International Robotics Challenge (MBZIRC) in Abu Dhabi as a part of the CTU-UPenn-NYU team. Building on their previous victory, the team won the Grand finale of the competition.
MBZIRC 2020 consisted of three challenges and the Grand Challenge where the team excelled at. The Grand Challenge required a team of three unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) to compete in a triathlon composed of the other three challenges. Seventeen teams of top experts in their field were challenged in tasks coming from safety sector, construction automation and urban firefighting.
Victory in MBZIRC has brought worldwide exposure for the field of autonomous UAV application, resulting in a number of new, fruitful relationships and opportunities. We are very proud of our hard-working team of scientists and we congratulate them for their excellent work.
