The UNIZG-FER team, consisting of researchers from LABUST (Laboratory for Underwater Systems and Technologies) and LARICS (Laboratory for Robotics and Intelligent Control Systems), won first place in the recent MBZIRC (Mohamed Bin Zayed International Robotics Challenge) 2023 competition!

The challenge was to search for the target ship in a large sea area and recover objects of interest using a system consisting of an unmanned surface vehicle (USV) and several unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) in GNSS-denied operation.

The competition took place in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, in January 2024. Despite considerable difficulties and an extremely challenging task, the team emerged victorious, performing impressively in all three rounds of the competition. This is a significant recognition for our laboratory and the culmination of all our work over the last years. We look forward to all future projects and opportunities arising from this recognition.
