Located in the recently built Myhal Centre, the Drone and Robotics Lab is a state of the art facility at the University of Toronto where experimental robotics are tested. The facility provides a flexible and demonstrative space for the research, testing and examination of drones and land-based robots.
The lab is equipped with a fully retractable motorized grid system, allowing users to easily adjust and reposition motion capture cameras and lighting. Four large shackles are mounted to the underside of the slab, supporting the chain driven motors that raise and lower the aluminum truss.
Drone safety netting separates the drone flying zone from the rest of the lab space. A sloped surface along the existing perimeter beam eliminates inaccessible areas where drones could become trapped.
