Our entry – The Ripper Group and University of Technology Sydney (artificial Intelligence technologies and ultra-low latency live streaming from drones).
The Innovation Award will go to organisations or individuals that have designed a new product, a new service, a new production or manufacturing process contributing to the advancement of the unmanned systems industry.
The Innovation Champion award will be judged on the inventiveness and relevance of the nominated technology.
A Pre-Condition for nomination is the technology was developed in Australia and has had commercial success or demonstrated market potential. An Innovation will show ‘Demonstrated Commercial Potential’ if, in the opinion of the judging panel, it has reached a distinct ‘market ready’ threshold and the innovator concerned has developed a sound business plan and can point to unsatisfied market demand for the product or service concerned.
