The theme of the competition was ‘search and rescue’ on an off-shore oil rig. The competition simulated an accident which happened in the rig, causing fire to the platform and resulting in people falling into the water. Representing the search and rescue team deployed to the accident site, the team used 2 UAVs to autonomously complete the following required missions:
1. Take off.
2. Do a fast mapping of the accident area to evaluate the whole situation and then find
designated targets, such as the location of the people in the water.
3. Deliver lifebuoy to the person’s vicinity.
4. Sample water around the oil rig and then release the water into a specified water container.
5. Landing on the same or specified landmark.
