Welcome to IMAV 2016 Official Website !

The International Micro Air Vehicle Conference and Competition 2016 (IMAV 2016) will take place in Beijing, China. The IMAV is a yearly event that combines a scientific conference with a technological competition involving Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs). Such a combination allows research groups from all over the world to share their knowledge, and stimulates them to focus on research that can be used in real life scenarios. Through out the years, the competition scenarios become more advanced and more extensive. However, competitors are given the opportunity to either do the complete missions, or to focus on sub-elements of the mission scenario.

We will select qualified teams and support up to 5000 Euro per team. Please fill up the registration form and send your team information to before the team registration deadline. Together with this form, please also prepare a video covering your team’s capability. The video should show the UAV flying in the air in manual mode and autonomous mode. If possible, an initial flight related to the competition missions is preferred.
