UAVs are highly mobile and can reach any location without the need of ground infrastructure, making them a prime candidate for emergency aid. The Institution of Mechanical Engineers hosts a competition to encourage the further innovation in this field of technology. DroneTeam Twente is currently working tirelessly to make an award winning design for the UAS Challenge 2021.
Transport4Transport is a Dutch organization which aims to improve transportation within Africa. As part of a R&D collaboration with Transport4Transport, DroneTeam Twente has been invited to test a humanitarian UAV in Malawi capable of autonomous mapping and aid delivery. In response, the team plans to take this opportunity, and go onsite to test our solution and implement it in the summer of 2021.
