The drone industry is rapidly expanding worldwide and academic research and education in this field have been increasing at a similar pace. Experimental activities can make research and education significantly more valuable.

ANT-X provides a complete indoor laboratory facility for research and education in multi-agent systems, flight robotics, flight control and aerospace control in order to satisfy the need for a ready to use and customizable platform for research and education.

The ANT-X laboratory will:

Enable academic researchers to achieve a fast transition to practice of advanced design methods for GNC systems.

Enrich the students’ experience in flight robotics and UAV control through hands-on experimental activities.

What we do

We enable a simple and fast transition to experimental activities in education and research thanks to the tight integration among the laboratory components.

We design and manufacture safe, robust and reliable drones, based on years of experience in laboratory work using state of the art hardware and processes.

We provide an industrially relevant research and education environment thanks to the use of PX4, the de facto worldwide standard in open source flight software.

We provide a complete software infrastructure enabling prototying and testing through our custom-designed sofware tools and PX4 modules.

We share years of experience in research and education in drones guidance, navigation and control through educational material based on state-of-the-art analysis and design methods.

We enable our users to become part of the PX4 community, which provides many tools for drone developers to create tailored solutions for drone applications.
