IARC Competition 7th Mission

Aerial Flying Robot & Arena Testing Scenario

We are using an AscTec Pelican quadrotor with an AscTec Mastermind onboard PC (Intel Core i7 processor). The sensor payload that is going to be used is: a down-facing optical flow sensor, a down-facing camera, and four side-facing cameras.


We are working on a replica of the IARC2014 competition scenario with challenging backgrounds.

And we also have some iRobots to test the competition algorithms, the following are images of our first tests where we checked how much weight they could carry:
