Autonomous Drones

The development of unmanned aerial vehicles, especially those with multi-rotor architecture popularly known as drones, has grown enormously in recent years.

The developments of autonomy for drones have applications in various areas such as exploration and mapping of land, search and rescue operations, surveillance and even in the visual arts.

In 2017, the TMR inaugurated the category of Autonomous Drones in which it seeks to promote the development of all technologies associated with this type of mobile robots.

Autonomous drones It is a flight challenge where teams are expected to demonstrate reactivity with their drones, such as avoiding obstacles, locating in the environment, planning routes and having the ability to generate maps.



To participate in Autonomous Drones, teams with a maximum of 6 participants can be registered. It is competed using any type of drone, as indicated in the respective regulation.

Teachers who accompany the team and who wish to have a diploma that recognizes their participation in the event, but do not require them to be assigned to the team work table, may register as mentors. The registration cost of the mentors is the same as that of the contestants.

The teams registered in this category are candidates to receive an enrollment scholarship to participate in Jalisco Talent Land, to be held from 02 to 06 April 2018 at Expo Guadalajara. You can consult more information at

The result obtained in the Mexican Robotics Tournament does NOT give the right to participate in any international league.



Check and download the rules for the category of Autonomous Drones:



  • Autonomous Drones - Beginners: Open only to high school and undergraduate students with a mentor. In this sub-league the participating teams are expected to present drones that can execute autonomous flight missions and demonstrate reactivity such as avoiding obstacles.
  • Autonomous Drones - Advanced: Open to all types of participants, including undergraduate, graduate and professors / researchers. In this sub-league the drone is expected to have autonomous flight capabilities, location in the environment, that can plan routes and have the capacity to generate maps.
