UAV Competition: The VAMUdeS Team Is World Champion
VAMUdeS (the Université de Sherbrooke’s Miniature Aerial Vehicle Organization) continues to be successful. After winning first place in Canada in May, the student club won the Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International’s (AUVSI) 2016 Student Unmanned Aerial Systems (SUAS) Competition!
This is the VAMUdeS club’s second world title—it also took home this title in 2012, along with the best flight award.
VAMUdeS had the best mission performance among the 24 teams from Canada, the United States, India, Israel, and Germany.
This team carried out a 30-minute flight, from takeoff to landing, without having a pilot intervene. Using its high-resolution imaging system, a series of tasks were successfully accomplished–aerial photos were taken, collisions were avoided, wireless network connection was made, etc.
The AUVSI’s SUAS Competition took place from June 15 to 19 in Patuxent River, Maryland.
“AUVSI’s competition brings together the best teams from around the globe, and it is a great opportunity to discuss future challenges in the autonomous aerial systems industry with them,” said Benoît Tremblay, a mechanical engineering student.
In May 2016, VAMUdeS won first place in Canada for an eighth consecutive year at the Unmanned Systems Canada UAV Student Competition.
