AlphaPilot -Lockheed Martin AI Drone Racing Innovation Challenge Calling all coders, gamers, race fans, and drone enthusiasts… Lockheed Martin and The Drone Racing League (DRL) challenge you to participate in AlphaPilot, an open innovation challenge, developing artificial intelligence for high-speed racing drones.
AlphaPilot will challenge teams of up to 10 participants each to design an artificial intelligence (Al) framework, powered by the NVIDIA Jetson platform for Al at the edge, that is capable of flying a drone-without any human intervention or navigational pre-programming.
Autonomous drones will race head-to-head through complex, three-dimensional tracks in DRL’s new Artificial Intelligence Robotic Racing (AIRR) Circuit, starting in 2019.
AlphaPilot aims to unite a diverse community of practicing and emerging Al experts, researchers and students to inspire the next generation of autonomous drone technology. By participating in this challenge, your knowledge and ideas can contribute directly toward the future of autonomous transportation, delivery, disaster relief, and even space exploration!
