PolyU Students Show Prowess in UAV Design Competition
Date:5/11/2013

(PRWEB) May 12, 2013

A student team from The Hong Kong Polytechnic University (PolyU) has made a strong presence in the 2013 Taiwan Innovative Unmanned Aircraft Vehicle (UAV) Design Competition by taking home the Second Runner-up (Navigated Flight Category). It is also the very first time that a university team from Hong Kong was honoured in this regional competition since its launch seven years ago.

Organized by National Cheung Kung University (NCKU), the UAV competition has drawn the participation of 93 teams from universities in Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore and the Chinese mainland this year. Led by Professor Wen Chih-yung and Associate Professor Dr Su Zhongqing of PolyU's Department of Mechanical Engineering (ME), the team was named "Poly-Phoenix" and with the following undergraduate students, namely Tse Chun-yin (team leader), Siu Man-chun and Pang Ho-yin.

The team was asked to build an unmanned aircraft vehicle from scratch and integrate its design with advanced Global Positioning System (GPS) technology to perform a simulated rescue mission and identify four missing objects in a wide coverage with a journey of approximately 10 kilometers. The whole mission including submission of the final report must be completed within 40 minutes. On top of the rescue mission, the entrants were graded on three items – payload weights, technical reports, presentations and manufacturing qualities.

Aviation expert Professor Wen Chih-yung is pleased to see that "Poly-Phoenix" designed by PolyU students has successfully demonstrated its capability to fly and meet the challenge of inspecting a wide region under the satellite navigation and identify targets based on real-time video recording. He added that such UAV technology is used not only in rescue mission but also for other applications such as border control.

Looking ahead, PolyU is committed to providing high-quality research and
