In his turn, Vladimir Rogozhin shared what students work on in the course of project activity in at the “Flying Robotics” lab:
“At project activity classes, students develop an additional automation platform that allows unnamed vehicles charge up even in hard-to-reach areas and reach the maximum speed and carrying capacity”.
For reference: Geek Picnic is an international popular scientific festival and open air devoted to the modern technologies, science and art. It has been held since 2011. The leading scientists, science promoters and public figures form the expert board of the venue.
