Welcome to VRAD

Robotify in partnership with The REC Foundation has created the world’s first global multiplayer virtual aerial drone competition. Our Roboduel platform allows registered VRAD teams the ability to compete anywhere in the world with any device.

Martian Survivial

VRAD combines the excitement of Esports and the educational value of computer science with a competition focused on real-world programming skills and gaming strategy.

How it Works

In this NASA-themed challenge, participants will program drones to operate on Mars and race to collect resources for their space base.

Real-time programming (Python) in a martian environment creates an “ingenious” powerplay between exploration and innovation for any programming experience level.

The Platform

Teams play in virtual browser-based matches, simultaneously programming and operating their space drones within the Roboduel multiplayer platform, hosted by Robotify.

The Mission

Explore, retrieve, and manage fuel supply by adapting strategy and drone sensors/algorithms to survive the harsh Martian environment. Engage in programming and the design process just like a real NASA astronaut.
