IMAV 2014 Competition Results

In 2014 the “International Micro Air Vehicle Conference and Flight Competition” took place in Delft, the Netherlands from 12th to 15th of August. It was organized by a committee of scientists of the Delft University of Technology (TU Delft). 248 visitors from different countries attended the IMAV 2014. The competition results and the capabilities the team demonstrated were:

1st prize: National University of Singapore (Singapore) [683]
Onboard automatic image stitching, onboard number recognition(*), onboard autonomous laser-based room navigation, onboard computer vision based precision roof landing, autonomous takeoffs, autonomous landings (*), onboard computer vision based 7-segment digit recognition (*), autonomous flying WiFi-relay.

2nd prize: Team Dipole (Germany) [425]
Smallest MAV’s of the competition. Very talented FPV flight with many take-off, precision landings, reading house numbers, visiting 18 indoor rooms (several double and not counted), recognizing 16 indoor objects correctly. Geocopter auto-take-off and flight, precision auto landing and partial high resolution ortophoto.

3rd prize: Ecole Nationale de l’Aviation Civile (France) [189]
Autonomous takeoff, Best overall photomission, all blockades visible, full village high resolution map at 6cm/pixel, autonomous computer vision based 7-segment display reading (**), longest correct observation string, autonomous roof landing (*), reading house numbers with many ARdrones in autonomous flight. Several autonomous landings.

4th place: High Flyers (Poland) [161]
