Team 2023-2024

DroneTeam Twente 6.0

We are DroneTeam 6.0, 15 students with one common mission: innovating and accelerating the drone industry to make a positive impact. We do this by participating in the annual iMechE UAS Challenge, where students need to develop new drone solutions that can perform a humanitarian aid mission.  For 2024, our goal is to release the drone as an open source design. 

With our innovative emergency aid drones, we aim to use drones for good. Together with our partners we develop new technologies to achieve this, while inspiring the world about drones and their applications. Will you join us on our mission?
