VRAD, presented by the REC Foundation and Robotify, offers a global, multiplayer, virtual aerial drone competition that combines the excitement of Esports, computer science, programming skills, and virtual drones.
Program your virtual drone to explore, mine, and carry minerals back to base while managing fuel supply. In Season 2, students can choose from 4 different drone types, but will have to balance weight, speed, battery capacity, and other design elements to perfect their winning strategy.
Teams will compete using real time programming and algorithms to control their virtual drones.The goal is to attain a higher score than their opposing team by mining more minerals before the time runs out.
Teams play in virtual browser-based matches, simultaneously programing and operating virtual drones within the Roboduel multiplayer platform, hosted by Robotify. Students can choose to program in Python or Blockly (coming in December 2021).
Your registration includes, team registration for VRAD season, access to web based gaming software and registration to all competitions.
The REC Foundation Aerial Drones (RAD) Program offers students a variety of opportunities to learn about aerial drone operations through in-person and virtual competition-based experiences. Thanks to our sponsors, teams can receive a bundle discount of $50 if they register for RADC and VRAD at the same time!
