Stacking challenge

Search and rescue operations inside of buildings require speed, precision, and situational awareness. In this competition, we will confront the teams with the task of autonomous block stacking as fast and high as possible in an unknown changing environment. The Drones will have to pick up building blocks, transport them through a transit zone with varying degrees of difficulty and either drop or stack them on top of each other in the drop zone. Separate colored lines on the ground will guide the drones through the obstacle course.
