We’re incredibly proud to host Cardinal S.A.R., one of the ten teams selected to compete in the 2016 DJI Developer Challenge. The team programmed a quadcopter to perform a mock Search and Rescue mission using the DJI Onboard SDK and M100 quadcopter. Tasks included taking off from a moving vehicle, searching through unknown disaster area for “survivors,” and landing on a moving truck bed. Steve Krukowski, Adrien Perkins, Sumant Sharma, and Jon Cox will share their experience from the competition, show test flight videos and talk about some of the technical challenges (topics: computer vision, estimation, mapping, precision control, and planning) they encountered along the way.
