smARTLab is a component of the Agent ART group at the department of computer science, University of Liverpool.  The lab is also affiliated with the Centre for Autonomous Systems Technology (CAST), in the same university. smARTLab is a state-of-the-art robotics laboratory that includes two large experimentation facilities (approximately 60 square meters each), of which one has high ceilings (about 4 meters) for experimentation with UAVs (but also UGVs). The UAV/UGV facility is located in room G12 of the Ashton building (ground floor) and the UGV facility is in room 206 of the EEE building, both on the main university campus. The robotics equipment in the lab includes 20 e-puck robots, 30 Turtlebot II robots, one octocopter, 10 nanocopters, one custom-built telepresence robot, three KUKA youBots, an optitrack motion capturing system, and a fleet of small robots including Surveyor Blackfin, Scribbler, LEGO NXT and custom-built platforms based on Raspberry Pi and Arduino processors. The lab includes computational facilities (3 8-core servers and 6 iMac clients) and two hardware workbenches. Feel free to step in and have a look.

The lab is headed by Dr. Frans Oliehoek and Prof. Karl Tuyls.
