MathWorks Minidrone Competitions

The MathWorks Minidrone Competitions will introduce participants to Model-Based Design using Simulink. The participants will design a line follower algorithm for a minidrone. The competition consists of two rounds. Teams that qualify from Round 1 will be invited to the Round 2 event hosted by MathWorks.

  • Round 1 Simulation Round: Design algorithms virtually using Simulink
  • Round 2 Simulation and Hardware Deployment Round: Deploy the algorithm on a Parrot minidrone when shortlisted

The top three winning teams will be declared at the end of Round 2.

Participating teams will be provided with complimentary MathWorks software.
