First steps

On the 16. September, we had the official kick off of our project.

Shortly after that we decided to participate together with the ASL Lab at the MBZIRC, a robotics Challenge in Abu Dhabi taking place next February ( We are responsible for challenge one. The aim of challenge one is to catch a ball which is connected to a randomly flying Drone. We are using

the Drone from Voliro ( as the platform. Our job is to create a catching mechanism and to develop a software such that the drone fulfills its task completely autonomously.
We managed to build the first prototype of our catching mechanism within 2 weeks. While the software team members got familiar with each working environment.
