Additional Information

At the center of the research studio are two autonomous vehicles for air and ground: the QDrone and QBot 2e. The successor of the QBall 2, the QDrone is a quadrotor air vehicle equipped with powerful on-board Intel® Aero Compute Board, multiple high-resolution cameras and integrated sensors. On the ground, the QBot 2e is an innovative open-architecture autonomous ground robot, equipped with a wide range of built-in sensors and a vision system. Working individually or in a swarm, these are the ideal vehicles for your research applications.
