About the Competition
“CREATE U.S. Open Robotics Championship 2023–CREATE DRONES” is an international tournament that aims to evaluate participants' drone control skills by completing designated mission tasks, such as using unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) generated airflow to move items and pushing down objects with UAVs. The teams need to collaboratively design, build and test additional equipment for UAVs, and record their work in engineering notebooks. Additionally, the teams can also cooperate to test their engineering, flight, collaboration, and communication skills. The single-flight competition offers each team two opportunities for solo flights, with scores calculated based on the remaining time on the clock. The judging criteria include the team's engineering notebook, on-site performance, technical knowledge, and social interaction during the event.
