Retrieval Drone Design
The Retrieval Done Design requires knowledge and experience from both mechanical engineering and electrical engineering students. The objective for the retrieval drone is to secure and deliver a device up to four pounds, no greater than 20 cm in size on any axis, a distance of 200 to 500 meters to a Safe Drop-Off location. The drone must be able to pick up the device by itself and may have to operate below the visual line of sight. This drone will have a grabbing apparatus to secure the device, as well as be stronger than the tracking drone to ensure it can deliver the device to the secure drop-off location reliably.
