Iranian Robotic Team Wins IMAV Prize

An Iranian robotic team from Amirkabir Robotics Center ranked second at the International Micro Air Vehicles Conference and Flight Competition in Aachen, Germany.
Affiliated to Amirkabir University of Technology, the Iranian robotic team was the runner-up to Germany’s AKAMAV, while Netherlands’ Tu Delft stood at third place, ILNA reported.
Seventeen teams from Germany, the Netherlands, France, China, Singapore, Brazil, India and Iran participated in this year’s edition of the IMAV competitions.
Iran had dispatched four teams and ARC was the only team to win a title. Farzad Ahmadinejad, Masoud Heidari and Shirin Reihanian-Mashhadi were members of the Iranian team.
The competitions were rather intense and each team was given a single 15-minute chance to display their technologies.
Organized by the Institute of Flight System Dynamics of the RWTH Aachen University and the German Institute of Navigation, this year’s event took place from September 15-18.
IMAV is an annual event that combines a diversified scientific conference with a technological competition involving micro air vehicles. Such a combination allows research groups from across the world to share their knowledge and focus on research that can be used in real life scenarios.
Every year the competition scenarios become more advanced and more extensive. However, competitors are given the opportunity to either do complete missions, or focus on sub-elements of the mission scenario.
The 2015 competition consisted of both outdoor and indoor segments. The focus is on tasks such as surveillance, recognition, logistics and precise maneuvering in combination with endurance.
