Lab Spotlight: NASA Langley - Autonomous Vehicle Research

UAV copters in Autonomous Vehicle Reseach Lab 1024x768

 

At NASA Langley Research Center, this indoor/outdoor lab is used to perform studies on different unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) flying in the same space. The Autonomous Vehicle Research Laboratory was envisioned as an area where innovative air traffic management tools could be tested, but it has found other uses. In 2012, the lab was used to test new vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) aircraft designs, and there are plans to test robotic systems designed for space exploration.
