After the Outback Challenge was finally successfully completed for the first time last year, we have been awaiting the announcement of the new challenge.
The new challenge, the Medical Express was recently announced at the Avalon Airshow. This involves collecting a blood sample from Outback Joe, and will require the UAV to solve additional challenges, including:
- Remote autonomous take-off and landing in a clearing
- Operating beyond communications range
The rules will be released on the website in the coming weeks.
