Mid-term meeting

at Karlsruher Institut für Technologie, Karlsruhe, Germany

As the myCopter project started in January 2011, we have now reached the mid-term mark. This point in the project's timeline constitutes a good moment to reflect on what we have achieved and to look forward towards the aims and goals that we want to fulfil.
We held our mid-term meeting in Karlsruhe, Germany. Our project officer from the European Commission attended the meeting to experience our project's achievements at first hand. All partners reported on their progress, and we discussed plans for work up until our final workshop.
To obtain an external perspective, we invited two keynote speakers that work in design and building of personal aerial vehicles. Their presentations resulted in lively discussions about the requirements and challenges for realising personal transportation, and provided us with fresh views to realise our work in the remainder of the project.
