We presented our "Intelligent Search and Rescue Drone" in the Ars Electronica Festival 2016 - DroneLab, Linz, September 8-12, 2016. This was a great opportunity to approach the general public about civilian applications for drones and research made in the ICG (TU Graz). We used this opportunity to show our drone and the capabilities of our 3D resconstruction software, and to describe the Graz Griffins', our team, participation in the 2016 DJI Developer Challenge.
Our team, the Graz
Griffins, has qualified to participate in the 2016 DJI Developer Challenge (see Challengers >> 1st round), among only 25 teams worldwide. The team consists of members from the IRT and the ICG, both institutes at the TU Graz. We will now receive our Developer Package, which includes the DJI Matrice M100 quadcopter equipped with the impressive DJI Guidance multipurpose sensing system, a Gimbal Zenmuse X3 camera and a DJI Manifold onboard computer!
