2015 KIPR Autonomous Aerial Robot Game

This year's game:
Search and Rescue

The Challenge:
Send an Autonomous Drone and Unmanned Ground Vehicle (UGV) through an structure, static environment, to recover Botguy. Your base station must map the environment and then direct the drone to fly safely through to scout ahead. An Unmanned Ground Vehicle can be deployed to recover Botguy and bring him back to the base station. Through the combination of Drones and UGVs, you can accomplish your mission to retrieve Botguy.
Three sets of movable walls will be placed at random locations before the start of the game. Your Drone must successfully fly to the other side and land next to Botguy. Being unable to reach Botguy with the Drone will hurt the mission. An UGV can be deployed to recover Botguy to bring him back to the base. A successful mission is defined as recovering Botguy, as well as all mission assets.
