Drone Applications for Smart Warehouse

23-24 February 2019

What is the Kerry Logistics Hackathon?

The Kerry Logistics Hackathon is an event where a select group of hackers will be given two days to develop the fastest and most accurate autonomous drones in capturing information on warehouses.

As part of this elite group, you will work together with drone engineers who share the same passion for autonomous drones. With them, you will use a mixture of robotics, machine learning and artificial intelligence to create the best path for the drones to move around and capture information on warehouses.

Professional mentors and industry-leading technology partners will also guide you in learning how to maneuver and program autonomous drones. You also get to explore cool machine learning applications such as computer vision and deep learning to extract information from the videos that the drones capture.

Join us on 23-24 February 2019 as we build the logistics of the future with “Drone Applications for Smart Warehouse”.
