Attention all AlphaPilot Contestants,
Today we are releasing additional details on Qualifier Test #3 - Guidance, Navigation & Control!
This third component of AlphaPilot qualifications will focus on a team’s ability to design algorithms for the guidance, navigation, and control of an autonomous drone. You can find details on Test #3 here.
Test #3 is built on the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) FlightGoggles simulator, a first-of-its-kind virtual reality environment for drone research and development. You can find the source code for the simulator, more information about how to get started, and some example challenge files here: http://flightgoggles.mit.edu/
