IMAV 2014 was a great experience this year. If you don’t know what it is, its a micro air vehicle competition and conference that was held in Delft, Netherlands.
During the three days of the conference, there were many very interesting talks and presentations as well as an incredible showcase of research talent during the competition. Here is a playlist of the talks, they can be found on the TU Delft MAVlab YouTube channel.
One talk we wanted to highlight was presented by Gautier Hattenberger from ENAC, he is also one of the core developers of Paparazzi UAV. He gave a very interesting talk highlighting the use of the Paparazzi UAV framework in autonomous aerial robot research.
Bart Remes gave a presentation on the Paparazzi UAV Lisa/S and nano Quadcopters. If you are interested in the technical side of the hardware you will definitely enjoy his talk.
If you were curious about the results of the competition, the first place was taken by a Singapore team with a great fleet of high tech quadcopters. The second place went to a German team led by Prof. Dr.-Ing. Klaus-Peter Neitzke that flew completely FPV and the third place went to our friends at ENAC flying Paparazzi powered quadcopters and airplanes. They also created the most usable and complete aerial maps of the village.
The Micro Aerial Vehicle Laboratory (MAVLab) of Delft University of Technology (TU Delft) is proud the present the 2014 International Micro Air Vehicle Conference (IMAV 2014), now offering the possibility of attending the conference by live stream free-of-cost. The live stream will support most platforms showing innovative keynotes of pioneers in the industry as well as the current state-of-the-art presented by many researchers working on MAV’s. The schedule is published on the website of the conference.
