Michał Jagielski’s Team Takes Drones and Voice Recognition to the Next Level with the Deep Drone Challenge

Michał Jagielski, Software Development Engineer at RTB House, together with his teammates Agata and Michał Barciś from the Technology Innovation Institute in Abu Dhabi, UAE, participated in the Deep Drone Challenge this summer. It is a competition in the field of drone technology and machine learning organized by brigkAir and Airbus. The event brings together students, start-ups, and drone enthusiasts to solve challenges and participate in complex flight missions.

The participants could compete in two different challenges: Track #1 with a drone flying autonomously using voice recognition and Track #2 with a drone flying autonomously in a disruptive environment. The final stage of the event took place on August 7th in Ingolstadt, Germany. Michał’s team decided on the first track and led their drone with voice commands to victory. The team was judged on parameters like flight time, precision, and novelty.

Michał Jagielski joined RTB House in 2017 and is working on the scaling and availability of our services. He dives into Deep Learning in his spare time and achieved even more success in this field. In 2017, when he was a member of the “Continuum” research club at the University of Wroclaw, the club placed second with its Aleph 1 Mars rover in the University Rover Challenge in Utah, USA. We are keeping our fingers crossed for his future success.

RTB House supports associates in pursuing their passions and is delighted to see their success and development.
