The tech manual
« on: November 02, 2017, 06:18:54 AM »
Hi folks,

Here are the Rules of the "Drone/UAV/unmanned whatever" Group Build:

  • Have Fun!!!
  • As the name implies, the idea is to represent things that are computer controlled as opposed to human controlled.  This includes UAVs, UGVs, USVs, robots, self drive cars, optionally piloted vehicles, armed or unarmed etc - you get the point.  If need be ask me.  Both real world or whiff are welcomed and encouraged. Any medium - so physical models, Pixels/profiles and stories (and anything else if you can think of it) are all welcome.
  • Creativity encouraged as is collaboration
  • Duration is 1 Nov 2017 to 31 Dec 2017 (sorry for the late notice folks-was busy raiding stashes...errr...doing work, here in the USA.  An extension may be granted, but only a short one and only if the Moderator (me) feels like it.  (Bribes welcomed on this front.)
  • Physical creations and pixels/stories will be judged separately
  • Any questions are to be directed to the Moderator (me again!)
  • See rule 1

Regards,

Greg

Glad I came back and checked - I had started some builds, but suddenly realized that I was building AI vehicles, not remotely operated vehicles - but I see the rules allow for the former. Whew.

"Duration is 1 Nov 2017 to 20 Jan 2018.  No further extensions will be granted (unless the Moderator (me) is bribed significantly)."

It seems there is not yet a topic/thread to present finished works ???
I fear I would miss the very day for presenting before vote (my goal is not to win but to be part of the contest).
