PURPOSE OF THE PROJECT
To provide to schools of engineering and design the possibility of working in a real project for developing an UAS. Students, with their participation, will acquire the skills of workgroup capacities, working by objectives, last minute technology and knowledge on future markets among others. On the other hand, UAS industry companies will have a laboratory of ideas and an additional source of future market and product technicians.
OBJECTIVE OF THE PROJECT
The project will consist on manufacturing a, fully functional UAS, following the AESA rules. In this primary edition, will be designed to undertake a representative humanitarian aid mission. The system will be required to operate automatically, performing a series of tasks such as area search, navigating waypoints, accurately dropping payloads and returning to base via a defined route. In future editions this target could be diferent. The phases during the project will include market analysis, definitions on product and its design, and, as a consequence of this, building a real prototype of an UAS. It will be mandatory, also, a business plan that explains how each team evaluates launching its UAS in terms of production, prices, dealers, markets...
The scope of the project this primary year is limited to engineering degree universities as well as the participation of mixed teams with departments or design schools or technicals universities from around the world. The final projects will be presented for verification in a workshop (3 days) at the BARCELONA racetrack

Give students real-world engineering experience before leaving university
Throughout the competition, students will get to demonstrate their technical, engineering design and manufacturing skills, learn key team-working, time management, project management, budgeting and presentation skills – and become better equipped for a long-lasting career in engineering. Aspects of the design can constitute their final year project.

The UAS Challenge has been established to:
Encourage and promote UAS research within academia
Promote inter-university collaboration to encourage fundamental and interdisciplinary UAS research
Encourage integration of enabling technologies in curriculum
Create a hub to foster closer academia / industry links
Enhance employment opportunities in the sector
Stimulate interest in sector and set challenges or aspiring engineers
Promote aerospace as a career for engineers
Develop team building skills of participants
Promote the public and professional perception of the Institution in aerospace
Promote awareness by both the educational establishment and the public of the role of the Institution in the aerospace technology field
Provide an opportunity for students to develop and demonstrate team working, leadership and commercial skills as well as technical competence
Universities around the country serve as host sites for TEAMS. Each year hosts update their information regarding the competition date and any fees they charge to hold the challange. Once a host has updated their information, the instittion name will appear on the TEAMS website in the drop down box as a choice for competition sites.
The BSDC is the event we’ve all been waiting for. It’s the pinnacle of the best teams from around the world coming together to see who’s champion. This event is the first challenge drone event where every team has had to earn their right to compete.
Dates: July 08 – 09, 2017
Location: Catalonia Circuit - Montmeló Flight test in the area called the thumbtack.
We also have more challenges for the engineers, from the famous Barcelona Smart Moto Challenge, here you have the link to this space. We want them to interact with each other to create interdisciplinary teams.

CEO &amp;amp;amp; Architect of Innovation
I Natxo Varona, innovative Barcelona, in love with the drones. Drone Smart Challenge is one of the projects most beautiful hardware and open source. We will work together to make more aéro accessible and free space.
Architect Learning Experience
SDC, a popular open-source drone developed in Catalonia makes all the conversion with drones quiet accessible and actionable. Flone is a co-operative project, which explores and envisions several applications that translate a basic drone into a multidisciplinary tool.
Dr. Emilio Hernández
Founder/creator Barcelona Smartmoto Challenge
Times are changing, as said a famous singer. Cities must change also. Too much noise, too much emissions, to much finite energy spent... We must do something... Smart Moto Association, with the help of Barcelona and Moscow cities, is trying to involve young engineers to work in this direction, in urban sustainable mobility where design is also important. That is the reason because the Barcelona (and Moscow) Smartmoto Сhallenge started. Young engineers, please, find the right solution!!! We will be proud of you!
Natxo wants to live in a world full of innovative companies that are eaten books bundled with the extra black chocolate and a force field around your keyboard that repels cats and small kids sticky fingers.

He is a regular contributor to Facebook Groups Post. He was named "Best Personality in the world of UAVs/drons".
When not writing or creating courses to help small business owners get better coverage, enabling synergies, you may be finding his whip a delicious gluten free, running barefoot or answer the question "why why" by the eleventy-bajillionth time.

It also has a sketch of an interesting book about emotions, feelings of that happening in the last year, being accompanied by her partner, friend, best companion of life, the book is scheduled for release this fall.
