Competition Details:

Get an introduction to Model-Based Design while challenging your peers. You will design a line follower algorithm using Simulink and learn how to model, simulate, and fly a Minidrone.

  • Competition Audience: Industry and academia worldwide
  • Team strength: 2-4 members including team captain

Teams will be provided with Complimentary MathWorks Software to work on the problem statement.

Round 1| Simulation 
Develop path planning, image processing, and control systems for a Minidrone line follower in simulations


Round 2| Deployment 
Deploy algorithms designed during the simulation round to a Parrot Mambo Minidrone provided to the teams by the organizers on the final event day.
