About the Competition

Within the scope of TEKNOFEST Technology competitions, International Unmanned Aerial Vehicles Competition will be organized.

The competition has been organized since 2016 to increase the awareness of youth regarding unmanned aerial vehicles (UAV) and help them gain technical experience. Support is provided for developing UAVs that can help humans in case of emergencies, such as fire or accidents, within the competition. 
The competition has two categories which are “fixed wing” and “rotary wing”. There are three phases in the competition. 
Teams are asked to complete tasks such as completing the track, recognizing useful load, and carrying and dropping at each stage. It is expected that they perform the assigned tasks autonomously in the advanced stages.
Teams are expected to accomplish two different flight missions in the competition. 
In the first mission, the maneuverability of the teams' aircrafts are tested. 
In the second mission, teams are asked to drop load of certain weight to a predetermined area. The following awards are presented to the teams ranking the highest in the competition.
