Announcing the 2020 Medical Rescue Challenge

The UAV Challenge organisers are very pleased to announce the UAV Challenge Medical Rescue for 2020. Outback Joe is unlucky again! This time he has had a serious accident in his shed. Medical professionals are rushing to save him but they need a live video feed of Joe as they prepare their rescue while en route. Teams must deploy their unmanned aircraft (and maybe a ground vehicle) to save the day!

We hope that this new UAV Challenge mission will continue to push the UAV community further and continue our own mission of accelerating the use of unmanned aircraft and systems that can save lives.

Go to the Medical Rescue page for full details (indulging Version 1 of the rules).
