RAS Team Wins "Best System Design" at International Aerial Robotics Competition with KDE Direct Motors

The International Aerial Robotics Competition (IARC) is an annual competition challenging teams to develop aerial robots to solve engineering problems on the cutting edge of what is achievable by industry or government robotics. The current mission involved developing an autonomous drone capable of interacting with randomly moving robots on the ground to direct them toward a specific goal. The Robotics and Automation Society at the University of Pittsburgh (the RAS team) designed and produced a drone to compete in Mission 7 of the International Aerial Robotics Competition.
