we were just curious
At the National Championship @ Bell HQ, we were shown a teaser of a shipping/logistics-oriented game. However, just this week a mass email was sent out revealing that this year’s game will be an enhanced version of last year’s firefighting with “Identifying hot spots (in new locations) using the thermal sensor” & “new and exciting rescue challenges”; here’s a snip of the email clarifying this further.
The 2023 Bell AVR Competition season was officially opened this week. Since none of the 2022 teams were able to fully extinguish the fires – Bell County is still burning! Our Bell County Fire Department is ready to send our fearless AVR teams back into the fray to compete in the 2023 Bell AVR Firefighting & Rescue Challenge! The game field will include some firefighting similarities to last season, but also some new and exciting rescue challenges that are sure to test even the most seasoned drone and ground-based robotics pilots. We are thrilled to offer an enhanced version of this game, and can’t wait for the full competition reveal on August 22, 2023. More information about the 2023 season can be found on the RECF website: Bell Advanced Vertical Robotics - REC Foundation
