Four UTC undergraduates win the Parrot Award 2017

Romain, Charles, Alexandre and Pauline, all four undergraduates at UTC, won the 2017 Parrot Award with a drone design that helps fire-fighters operating on high-risk industrial sites!

In the case of an accident, the drone automatically takes to the air and communicates to the authorities the nature, the gravity and extent of the fire.

Ray SQ (the name of the drone) allows the authorities to gain precious minutes in their assessment of the human resources and equipment needed to control and fight the fire.
