The Robotarium

The Robotarium


The Georgia Tech Robotarium is a
remotely accessible swarm robotics testbed. The Robotarium is located in
the Van Leer Building which is here in the center of campus. It’s also home to
the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering. We have 100 ground robots
differential drive and 25 flying robots. Anyone in the world can go online to our
website Robotarium.org and upload code which will be executed on real
robots within the Robotarium. One of the special things about the Robotarium is
that it’s free to access from across the world. So it does not matter if you’re a
high school student or an undergraduate or a teacher. The robotarium is
completely free to use. It allows researchers that maybe don’t have the
means to build a huge robotics lab to actually test their algorithms in real
robots at no cost. One of the cool things about the Robotarium is that it is
operational 24/7, which means that there are users from all across the world
submitting experiments at any point of time. Researchers from every continent
but Antarctica have used the Robotarium with their experiments. It’s
amazing to have these robots operating all the time in a room right beside
where you work. That’s just a special feeling.
