This year’s scenario:

“This year’s challenge enables students to showcase their team’s technical and flying skills by finding solutions for one of the fastest growing applications in the logistics, retail and emergency services / humanitarian sectors….using drones to deliver packages. The scenario surrounds a medical emergency facing remote communities in Manitoba! Teams have been called upon to design an Unmanned Aerial System (UAS) to deliver critical medications and supplies from their depot to communities that are inaccessible by road. For the first time, teams will have the option of deploying an Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) to remove their box of medical supplies from the clinic and place it where the drone can pick it up.”
