Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to announce the first FPV Drone Racing VIO competition. 
The competition will be held jointly with the 5th edition of the IROS 
2019 Workshop on "Challenges in Vision-based Drone Navigation", which 
will take place on November 8, 2019, in Macau.

The participants will run their VIO algorithms on datasets (including 
images, IMU measurements and event data) recorded with a FPV drone 
racing quadrotor flown by an expert pilot with speeds up to and over 
20m/s. The goal of the competition is to estimate the quadrotor motion 
as accurately as possible, utilizing any possible sensor combinations. 
The winner will be selected based on the accuracy of the estimated 
trajectories and will be rewarded with a prize sum of 1,000 USD plus an 
invitation to deliver a talk at the workshop.

Submission deadline: October 1, 2019.
