Team Élikos chosen as finalist at the International Aerial Robotics competition
Students at Montreal’s École Polytechnique are hoping their drone will be the first to fly without a GPS or a human at the controls. The team is the only Canadian one still in the running for the top prize at the International Aerial Robotics Competition (IARC).
Team Élikos has built a drone that is operated by artificial intelligence. The goal is to have the drone not only take off, fly and land on its own but also have it corral little robot vacuum cleaners that are circling on the ground.
