A flying drone in the ASU Drone Studio

The 10,000-square-foot ASU Drone Studio is academia’s largest indoor space for drone, robot and other large-scale research of swarming, cyber-physical systems and human-robot interactions. 

The space is now open to additional members of the ASU community and government and industry partners as a recharge center. New ASU and external partners can now make paid reservations at hourly rates

ASU Drone Studio users can take advantage of 105 high-precision Optitrack infrared cameras, 3D tracking system and other capabilities and software. The systems can capture 360 measurements per second for up to 150 robots simultaneously and with 0.5-millimeter accuracy. The studio can support both ground and airborne robots and drones.

The space opened in early 2019 and is managed by the School of Computing, Informatics, and Decision Systems Engineering, one of the six Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering, and has been home to translational research by Fulton Schools faculty. 

New users must undergo the required training and adhere to rules and COVID-19 precautions.
