Our facilities

The QUT Centre for Robotics has over 1,000 m2 of modern, purpose-designed open labs and offices, overlooking the Brisbane River.  This allows our teams to collaborate and also take inspiration from work happening around the lab.

Take a virtual tour of our lab spaces and our open plan seminar and social space.

In addition to our offices and lab space, the Centre also offers access to the QUT Flying Arena (QFA).

The QUT Flying Arena offers a safe, controlled sandbox environment allowing the testing and validation of aerial robots and research involving them. Thanks to its large size, it allows the testing of different sensors, payloads and control and navigation approaches and algorithms. The QFA indoor flying arenas offers ideal conditions to test novel concepts thanks to a high-precision localisation system, high-performance radio links, easy-to-use software structure, and safety netsor enclosing the spaces 

QFA comprises three independent testing spaces for indoor testing distributed at QUT Gardens Point Campus and QUT Da Vinci Precinct. QFA also uses a fourth testing space for outdoor testing at QUT’s Samford Ecological Research Facility (SERF).

If you are interested in knowing more about QFA for your research project or aerial robotics, UAS demonstration, please email Centre for Robotics, Chief Investigator Professor Felipe Gonzalez (felipe.gonzalez@qut.edu.au) with your enquiry.
