  • Logic
  • Resilience
  • Technical knowledge


​​​ The Challenge: Flying a drone using voice commands
 
This is a programming challenge, with the goal of creating a web application that allows the control of a Tello drone’s flight using voice commands. A voice recognition platform and a software development kit for the drone will be provided. The teams will have to code the app to interact with the drone, send commands, extract flight information from it, and display some of this flight information back into a visualization dashboard.

The teams will have at their disposal different paths to follow to achieve the goal.

Basic technologies involved:

- HTML, Javascript and CSS

- HTTP REST API

- C# (.NET)

- Optional: Microsoft PowerBI streaming datasets and dashboards
 
Date: Dec. 6, 2019
Time: 12:00 p.m. - 5:00 p.m.
Location: 27100 W. 11 Mile Rd. Southfield, MI 48034
 
*Stefanini will provide the computer, lunch and snacks for all participants.
