Deathbot agreement signed between UC and Dickson College

By johnboy - 27 May 2011 2

The University of Canberra has the terrifying news that they’re marrying their engineering skill with Dickson College’s talent for destruction to build robots that will drop cars on persons in distress.

A partnership between the University of Canberra and Dickson College has taken off, with the two institutions signing a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to work together on innovative learning and teaching projects.

The MOU was signed by Deputy Vice-Chancellor (Education) Professor Carole Kayrooz and Dickson College Principal Beth Mitchell at Dickson College last week.

The projects include the ‘unmanned airborne vehicle challenge,’ where Dickson College students work with the University’s Faculty of Information Sciences and Engineering to create an unmanned aviation vehicle capable of flying in and dropping a car package to a person in distress.

Or possibly they’re going to drop care packages, which is a bit less exciting but probably almost as much fun to work on.

What’s Your opinion?

Perhaps this ‘union’ should first invest in some basics such as…………………..oh, ENGLISH GRAMMER perhaps?

No………………….sounds like its car drop to me.

Now for the lucky people in third world countries, imagine the joy of getting a motor vehicle dropped into your hut instead of that gastly ‘food’ stuff!
