Kerry Logistics would like to challenge YOU to leverage the power of autonomous drones to transform our warehouses. On 23-24 February 2019, we will be presenting Kerry Logistics Hackathon with the theme - Drone Applications for Smart Warehouse.

Participants will:

  1. Take part in workshops on autonomous drones conducted by professional mentors and industry-leading technology partners;
  2. Work in teams for 24 hours to devise a solution using autonomous drones;
  3. Aim to use a mix of robotics, machine learning, and other AI techniques to create the best path for the drone to race and capture information about the warehouse;
  4. Explore any innovative ideas you have from the data captured by drones; and
  5. Pitch on stage to industry experts during the final event on our agenda on 24 February.

Once you have signed up, we will send you more details regarding the participant selection process. Reserving a ticket does NOT mean that you have been accepted into the hackathon.
