Drone Hero Europe 2019

Award Ceremony

Davide Falanga and Kevin Kleber from the Robotics and Perception Group won the Innovative Drone Hero Europe contest 2019 in Amsterdam. Congratulations!

Inspired by birds, the new drone can squeeze itself to pass through gaps. After an earthquake or during a fire the new drone could look for people trapped inside and guide the rescue team towards them.

Motivation of the jury: «University of Zürich has built a clever innovation inspired by nature.»
