Loon Copter’s multi-rotor drone from United States won the US$ 1 million prize in the International Competition of the UAE Drones for Good Award while UC Berkeley & SuitX, also from the United States, was the winner of US$ 1 million prize in the UAE AI & Robotics Award for Good.
We reported the Loon here a few weeks ago – it is an amphibious UAV – it flies, floats and dives. Developed at Oakland University. I just love what these guys over in Dubai are doing. It is so smart on so many levels and the PR value far exceeds the prize. The boys from Oakland look pretty happy – nice to see.
