IROS 2017 Competition: Autonomous Drone Racing(ADR) in Mos Eisley Vancouver

The IROS 2017 Autonomous Drone Racing in Mos Eisley Vancouver Arena (Racing)
is a technical challenge sponsored by IROS 2017 Organizing Committee aimed
to provide worldwide robotic researchers a technology showroom for
autonomous flight and to promote solutions for the agile autonomous flight
of drones in daring environments. Participants will bring their own flying
robots in Mos Eisley Vancouver Arena and be asked to fly them autonomously
through designated tracks in the circuit. The technical challenges combine
the time optimal path planning for drones, flight and tracking control,
obstacle detection, localization, and fault detection and recovery. Two
racing times will be recorded and scored by its best flight time through the
start and the finish line. More detail rules of Racing can be found in the
competition web pages.
