We are part of the team that had won a technology challenge for an Autonomous Drone Capable of Performing Ultrasonic-Thickness (UT)” that organized by the local oil and gas company.
A total of 17 proposals from 12 higher learning institutions in Malaysia had submitted their proposal and only five (5) best proposals had been selected for the finalists. Universiti Kebangsaan Malaysia (UKM) was announced the winner after scoring the highest marks during the Obstacle Course event. And we the only team that completed course autonomously. Our programming skills were tested and excelled to ensure the drone achieves stability and is capable of maneuvering the obstructions.
We are currently working closely with an established company to develop an intelligent part for the autonomous drone. We also do a collaboration with a small entrepreneur that has an excellent competency in the UAV. With their help, we are able to catch up with the industry faster.
