Slide background

Research

The Flying Machine Arena offers a safe, controlled sandbox environment allowing the testing and validation of mobile robots. Thanks to its large size, it allows the testing of fast-paced motions, be it on the ground or in the air. The Flying Machine Arena offers ideal conditions to test novel concepts thanks to a high-precision localization system, high-performance radio links, easy-to-use software structure, and safety nets enclosing the space.

The Flying Machine Arena is used in a range of projects carried out at the Institute for Dynamic Systems and Control and other research laboratories. Thanks to its versatile nature, it is used both as an experimental test bed in its own right and to validate other experiments.
