Melbourne F1 Grand Prix 2018

For the third year in a row, the RMIT Unmanned Aircraft Systems Research Team (RUASRT) had a stand in RMIT’s Innovation Precinct at the Melbourne Formula 1 Grand Prix. Alongside tech-related groups like the Formula-SAE teams, we showcased our research drones and provided flight demonstrations in our huge netted area.

Postgraduate and undergraduate students, as well as several academics from the team, were there to talk with racegoers about all things drone. The flying demonstrations were a big hit, and as always, “Eddie the Eagle” was a fan-favourite.
