Competition rules

This is a summary of the rules. The exact rules and competition requirements can be downloaded here, and are still being finalized (feedback on e.g. loopholes is welcome). The four most important principles are:

Each team must have at least one Fighter drone and a Queen drone, but more drones are allowed in all stages. (e.g. Defender drones near the Queen, dedicated race drones at the start, etc).
Each team is provided with one FPV video race band frequency, to allow four teams to battle at the same time. A team is allowed to switch between the FPV video output of their drones, as long as the same channel is maintained and the other teams are not jammed.
The Queen drone must fly at all times. This means, the Queen for instance may need autonomous hover capability if a team wants to control another drone.
The team with the most points wins. Points are awarded by the independent jury (Law Enforcement), and are visualized live during the game to the audience. Exact information on how to earn points can be found in the detailed rules.
The FPV streams will also be shown on large screens to the audience. Teams cannot assume they will have Line of Sight of their drones, so that the drones must either be controlled through FPV, or autonomous in nature. The competition will be held inside. As such, GPS is unlikely to be available.


Read everything and still enthusiastic!? Good, these are the steps required to join the competition.

Subscribe your team before May 1. The costs, per team, are €150,-. This is less than the actual costs, but we do ask this small amount make sure teams are serious about subscribing.
You will be contacted by email on May 7, a short Skype team interview will be planned.
Deliverable 1 is due on May 31. It should describe the general approach your team wishes to take, and a detailed safety analysis and requirements document.
Deliverable 2 is due August 1. We require a video demo of the general approach, and should demonstrate a well oiled team.
Be sure to keep December 3 AND 4 free. We may organize pre-rounds on December 3. The actual competition will be December 4.
Deliverables 1 and 2 are each rewarded with points by Law Enforcement with up to a max of 1000 points per deliverable.

Leuk idee :D Ik denk dat dit duurder is dan een robot bouwen :).
Ik mis wel wat spelregels. Vlammenwerpers toegestaan vraag ik me af :)
What goes up must come down...
