Pi Powered Drones at the MAAXX Drone Racing Event #piday #raspberrypi @Raspberry_Pi

via RaspiHub

This weekend Steve Wright, a lecturer at the University of the West of England (UWE), organised the first MAAXX drone racing event. It was hosted at the UWE Exhibition Centre in Bristol and open to visitors and competitors. The concept was for teams to design, build and operate autonomous line following drones to compete against each other. The course was a netted area with an oval defined on the ground using red tape. Two of the entrants were using Raspberry Pi powered drones.
