Size of the arena is roughly 40m x 40m rough grass ground with random objects spread inside it.
There will be 5 mannequins randomly placed in the arena among other objects. Team that finds 4 out of 5 mannequins first will be declared first. The locations of these mannequins should be displayed on a map (say google map) with an accuracy of 5m.
Teams should use multiple drones working as a swarm to complete the mission.
Objective of the mission is Object identification inside an arena in shortest possible time. Comercial frames of UAV may be allowed. However, IITR can decide this criteria as per their standards.
Processing can be on-board or at the ground station. In any case, whoever identifies 4 mannequins out of 5 and correctly gives their location in minimum time wins.
Pass the coordinates and display on a map a minimum 4 locations out of 5.
The mission should be autonomous. Persons should not be flying it.
The word ‘Mannequin’ arose out of a confusion. The target is a cube of green color as mentioned in the original problem statement. There will be 5 such cubes in the arena. Whoever finds 4 in shortest time, wins that stage.
Readymade flight controller can be used.
As soon as the final target is detected, all drones must terminate their mission and land back.
Teams have to create their own sample data
Can be any random objects, like bags, chairs, sticks etc etc. Any random objects available on the day can be placed in the arena.
Yes. But ideally, UAVs should plan their own path.
It will be roughly marked by white limestone powder. Latitude & Longitude of 4 corners of arena can be provided on the day if any team desires.
Any one point outside the arena as decided on the day.
