The Georgia Institute of Technology is opening the “Robotarium” this month to allow users from around the world to test out their code on a rotating pair of robot swarms. The 725-square-foot facility features a 12-inch x 14-inch bowl-shaped court and is home to teams of wheeled and flying swarm robots that users can put their code to the test on after honing it on simulators provided by Georgia Tech. Passersby can see the robots in action through a window and users can watch video captured by motion-activated cameras on the Robotarium’s ceiling of the robots running their code.
