ArmRobotics/ UAV contest
The "Unmanned Aerial Vehicles" competition was held within the framework of «ArmRobotics» Robot Development Project. It aims at the development of robotics in Armenia, publicizing the interest in robotics, identifying and encouraging talented Armenian schoolchildren and young people who can make a great contribution to Armenia's military industry and technological development.
The Unmanned aerial vehicles are widely used both in the economy and the military. They can control the traffic, shoot forests by preventing poaching and fires; they can record the area and report the necessary data during emergencies, as well as transfer cargos to impassable areas. As to the military, these devices can carry out intelligence and hit targets.
