This years IMAV 2023 features two separate competitions. The main focus of the outdoor competition is a search and rescue mission. Unmanned aerial vehicles can be used in search and rescue operations to quickly survey large areas, provide aerial perspectives for rescue teams, and assist in locating missing persons and survivors. Flight systems equipped with appropriate sensor technology can detect heat signatures, making it easier to locate people in difficult and hazardous terrain. This year’s goal is to locate and examine missing hikers in an unknown environment. While the main aspects in the outdoor competition are speed and efficency, the indoor competition focuses on precision. Here, teams must fly through an obstacle course and stack building blocks on top of each other.
