    Hi there,

    Just to let you know that your Udoo Quad board is being used by the Dickson College UAV team on-board a search and rescue U.A.V. We are heading up to Queensland, Australia next month to hopefully save "Outback joe" by autonomously locating him and dropping a "life-saving" chocolate bar to him.

    The system includes a PT Grey camera connected to Open CV, a custom relay board to activate the drop mechanism, and a connection to a PIXHAWK autopilot for navigation control.

    Great work on developing the board. It is very nice to work with.
