The Aerospace Robotics Competition is a high school drone competition. Teams are asked to carry out a variety of design tasks from designing autonomously released mechanisms to developing flight plans and executing them on the drone. The Fall competition required the drones’ use of machine vision to identify and pop in proper sequence color balloons tacked to a vertical wall. See the video here:
