You can now find us at Capitool 25, Enschede, Netherlands. This new, larger workspace will allow us to innovate drone technology even further! We are also happy to share this building with other hard working teams: Electric Superbike Twente, Solar Boat Twente, RoboTeam Twente, and Green Team Twente.
We are DroneTeam Twente, the first and only competitive student drone team in the Netherlands based at the University of Twente. At DroneTeam we are preparing our members to become the leaders in tomorrow’s drone industry, by education and participating in various international drone competitions. Our mission is to accelerate drone innovation for humanitarian aid!
We won the Innovation Award
It has been a busy year for our team. Yesterday, our design process came to a culmination as a team of engineers from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE) judged our efforts. And not without results. With our innovative design, containing highlights such as a tilt-rotor mechanism, a 3D-printed modular frame and combined vertical stabilizers and landing gear, we won our very first prize as a team. In total 33 university teams from 10 different countries competed and we were one of the six price winners.
Our crowdfunding is online! This year we are participating in the IMechE UAS Challenge in England. Next to the competition we are going to Malawi in collaboration with Transport4Transport. With this foundation we are going to map the area, test on delivering medicines and educate the local people. Please help us reach new heights and make our mission succed!
