The drone industry is now having exponential growth. Here at TechnoXian Drone Challenge, students learn, explore and evolve along with the applications of today and discoveries of tomorrow. The challenge has been designed to build drones and encourage participants for creativity, teamwork, critical thinking, and enjoyment.

The challenge is to build a drone within the specified dimensions that are aerodynamically stable to achieve a successful flight. The competition has 4 rounds, in which the performance of the drone will be evaluated individually. The team Scoring the maximum points in the final round will be nominated as the winner of the competition.

  • 100 Teams to participate in Drone Challenge.
  • All participants will get the certification of Participation from “All India Council For Robotics & Automation (AICRA)”.
  • INR 1,25,000 to be awarded to winning teams.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Open for all : Colleges/Universities every age group can participate.

How To Get on Drone Challenge

A match is played by a single team in one go, with each team consisting of 1 Drone.

  • An individual may participate or construct a team of a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 10 members. Any institution (School/College/University/Vocational Institution) or group of students (within defined age), may form a team.
  • Register team for the specified competition online on the official technoxian website only.
  • Construct a drone between 40cm*40cm (L*B) and  75cm*75cm (LxB) (Measured diagonally – motor shaft to shaft / Wheel Base of the Drone frame) size and a maximum weight of less than 2Kg. the Drone fits the mentioned specifications as long as the design and construction are primarily the original work of the team. A ready-made drone kit is not acceptable, if found so, the team will be disqualified.
  • Prepare a video of 1 minute to 5 minutes (maximum 100 MB), showcasing team readiness, creativity, preparing for challenges, or anything to show passion to participate in TechnoXian. Share the video either on email at videosubmission@technoxian.org (as google drive or We transfer) or WhatsApp at +91 8924934336 mentioning Your Team Registration ID.

The team has to design and construct a drone (Tri, Quad, or Hexa) with the following specifications:

  • The complete Drone (including Battery and landing gear) should be of length minimum 40cm*40cm (L*B) and maximum 75cm*75cm (LxB) (Measured diagonally – motor shaft to shaft / Wheel Base of the Drone frame) and must weigh less than 2Kg.
  • There is no restriction on the use of any frame material or specification of the BLDC Motors, Electronic Speed Controllers, Propellers, Batteries, and Weight of the Drone.
  • The Drone must be electrically powered only

The field area would be approx 100 M2

  • There are marked/specified regions/spots to take off and land the drone.
  • Hurdles will be placed at a different locations in the arena.
  • Fields will have arrows marked to depict the maneuvering path.
  • Specific checkpoints will be defined in the arena for changing the batteries, adjusting gains, calibration of sensors, etc.
  • Time will be given to the teams for charging their batteries at the completion of every stage. The requirement of time of charging the batteries during the conduct of competition will not be entertained.

Pre-Game setup:

  • The Drone will be evaluated on various parameters such as design, construction, and innovation.
  • Every aspect of the Drone will be observed for scoring which includes the connection of various parts, fixing of components, materials used, aero modelling, etc.

Game Clock: The game clock starts as soon as the referee commands the beginning of the round and stops as soon as the maximum access time (5 Minutes) of that round elapse.

Run Time: Run time starts as soon as the game clock starts/the drone takes/off and stops when the drone lands successfully.

Flight time: The flight time will be the official time taken by each drone. Flight time= (Total Access time for the round)-(Run time)

Round 1 (5 min) FIELD SURVEY:

  • Minimum 3 to maximum 4 teams would be playing at a time.
  • In this round, Team has to do a survey of fire ground to gather information about casualties, observing terrains and obstacles. (2 min)
  • Reporting the data and status of fireground to team and making the strategy for operation. (1min)
  • Meeting with other team captains for cooperation to make the rescue mission successful. (2 min)
  • The challenge is to take off from a specific location and land within the boundary of a predetermined circular landing spot in the minimum time possible and before the access time elapse.
  • The top 15 teams to complete the circuit with the best timings will move to the final round.

Round 2 (5min) RESCUE ROUND

  • Different colour of “Rescue Boxes” will be kept in center area, one each allocated to 1 team.
  • Drone to pick casual bodies (weight appx 100gm) from fireground and drop them in Rescue Box.
  • Points will be awarded for each life saved (Collection of bodies in Rescue Box) with the defined timeline.
  • The team completing the round in the minimum time to complete the round and scoring the maximum point will be nominated as the winner of the competition.

Radio Control: Radio control requirements:

Radio systems MUST NOT cause interference to other frequency users. At drone, only the 2.4ghz DSS (Digital Spread Spectrum) frequencies are allowed. Radio telemetry is permitted on 433MHz and 2.4GHz.
