About the Competition

There is a growing need for Swarm Robots one of the most significant technologies of the near future. The importance of Swarm UAVs is becoming more and more manifest in both civilian and military use. For instance, a civil scenario could involve responding to forest fires much more efficiently with Swarm UAVs, and in the military scenario, one party could gain an advantage over an existing aerial, ground and marine manned platform by developing a set of alternative strategies and tactics. 
The primary objectives of Swarm UAV Competition include developing software algorithms to organize UAV swarms that can perform the tasks assigned as per terms and conditions of the competition, and demonstrating the performance results of these algorithms with Swarm UAVs in a physical environment, as well as providing guidance to youth and helping them gain experience and knowledge. 
Once these UAVs are organized, the teams are expected to fly virtual and real UAVs in swarms, and share videos of their flights.
The competition consists of theseUAV following tasks:
-    UAV individual take-off, aerial formation
-    Formation take-off
-    Adding a drone to the swarm
-    Removing a drone from a swarm
-    Swarm rotation by preserving formation
-    Formation change
-    Swarm dispersion
-    Swarm massing
-    Swarm navigation
-    Swarm ascent-descent
-    Autonomous simultaneous/sequential landing as a swarm or in swarms
During the competition, appropriate measures must be taken to avoid collision while performing tasks with UAVs.

Eligible Participant Education Levels for the Competition 
-    Associate Degree Students, Undergraduate Students, Graduate Students and PhD Students
-    University Graduates

Reporting Phases 
-    Preliminary Design Report 
-    Critical Design Report 
-    Proof of Flight and System Description Videos

Apart from the information given in the specification, for any other questions you want to ask about the competition, you must be a member of the related mailing group from the SWARM ROBOTS COMPETITION GROUP link. The questions you will ask and the answers to these questions will be clear to the other members of the mailing group. The templates for the reports that the contestants need to prepare will be announced on the TEKNOFEST website in the future.

Competition Application Deadline is 07 MARCH!
