The 1st Greater Bay Area drone competition
Team GG2EZ Drone Studio
Host department: Department of Mechanical Engineering, Faculty of Engineering, the University of Hong Kong
Project supervisor: Dr. Fu Zhang
Theme: executing a rescue mission by drone through automation
Drone: Self-controlled quadcopter without a pilot control able to grab and drop a medical package.
Flight area: 20m x 10m, height 5m, filled with props obstacle such as fake tree and other distraction. One of each vertical and horizontal hole required the drone the cross.
Task: Search for dummy victims and hover above the location of the dummies. While sending light and sound signal while hovering above dummies according to the numbers of victims, then, drop the medical package according to the number of dummies.
Key of competition: construction of automation program which allow the quadcopter to fly automatically.
Size of the drone
Less than 400mm×400mm×300mm
Between 300mmm to 500mm
Less than 1000g
Less than 500g
Maximum takeoff weight
Less than 1500g
Method of control
Manual control, Autonomous control or Hybrid control
The drone takes off from the search and rescue base (the landing zone) and crosses the obstacles following order of A, B, C, and D. The task is to search for the target and locate their position, report the number of targets, and drop enough medicines and supplies to the location. Those zones consist of multiple interferences including mirrors, wind and going through tunnels
20m × 10m, height 5m
There are props such as distress, rockery, fake tree, etc. The referee arranges according to the scene of the game. The vertical and horizontal crossing holes are cylindrical wireframes with a diameter of 600mm and a length of 1000mm.
Medicine Package dropping area
It is a green circle with a diameter of 2m. There are 5 concentric circles in the circle, and the distance between concentric circles is 20cm.
There is a medicine grabbing station near the landing zone, which is placed in the material storage area.
A medicine pack is placed on the medicine grabbing table and weighs about 50 grams. The size and shape are shown in the below figure. (1m x 1m x 0
One representative per team.
Design the logo on the computer and draw the component engineering drawing and print it out by 3D printing.
We currently have a drone made and we are looking for teammates who are good at Python Programming skills and have drone programming experience before.
