Tech this out! Georgia Institute of Technology is working on a first-of-its-kind lab for its campus. Think all things robotic. And it's appropriately named "Robotarium".
Roboticists, researchers, and students of all ages will have the opportunity to experiment, test, teach, and program their way to the future. An existing classroom is being transformed into the lab and will be large enough to house up to 100 ground and aerial robots.
Helping to fund this project is The National Science Foundation, with two grants totaling $2.5 million. Using another award, Georgia Tech will be creating a safe and secure open-access system.
With all the robots and being open to the public, how will they avoid crashes? Easily. An algorithm, preventing robots from colliding, has already been developed!
The "Robotarium" will be fully up and running in 2017.
