Autonomous Systems Test Arena
Our new facility for cooperating autonomous systems - in air, on the ground, on water and below the water surface.
Rambøl - expected view of building from the south - operational March 2020.
- Fence blocks - former Autonomous Eco-car fence
- Drone net - drone net mounting
Sketch of building 330D
Overall sketch of the facility, an air dome, about 24 x 40m (960 m^2) with a roof height of 14m. The dome is divided into 3 sections with drone net. In one end is a pool 3.5 x 6.5 x 3m deep and in the same area a camera localization system for accurate ground truth localization.
25 Feb 2020. Heating installation, electricity supply and panels (in progress).
week 10-11 (2 Mar to 13 Mar):
* Finalize pool * Final installation of office cabin, storage, camera truss and drone net. * Grand opening - not decided yet
As of 19 Mar 2020. The external parts finished with a celebration before everything closed down. The progress has for some parts stopped, but the bool accessories are progressing and almost there, missing a bit of fence, some electricity and some water. The drone safety net is getting higher, but progress har stopped for now.
Timelapse from the inflation of ASTA (Fre 21 Feb 2020).
As of 27 Feb 2020. The weather is fine and Asta looks good. Central heating is in place and connected to the fan.
As of 24 Feb 2020. Now it looks a bit like the artist impression above. There is light and we got maintenance instructions by the supplier.
As of 21 Feb 2020 about 15:00. Inflation of the dome. The wind was a bit heavy, but no real harm is done. An amazing arena, almost like a cathedral (including the acoustics).
As of 21 Feb 2020 9:30. The rollout of the dome. 42 students and employee signed up to assist the manual process of unrolling the dome. First across, then stretch, and fine adjustment of the sides at the end.
As of 19 Feb 2020. The dome has arrived - white package to the right - and the new vehicle entrance is partially built - to the left. The right image shows the progress with asphalt, the base is wet, but the result looks OK (and hopefully stays that way).
As of 18 Feb 2020. The dome has arrived! Asphalt will be laid Wednesday.
As of 17 Feb 2020. During the weekend 10-15 m3 rain was captured by the cover. Today we - including Suzanne on the picture - removed the cower pouring the water over the edge, removing the cover sheets and the planks. So that the wind can dry the area. There may come some 1-2mm rain from Tuesday to Friday, so it should be OK for asphalt and possibly the dome too.
As of 15 Feb 2020. No asphalt this week, so we prepared for rain during the weekend, to ensure a fairly dry area Wednesday for asphalt. The crew is Trine, Søren, Mikkel, Helge, Lazaros and me (taking the picture).
As of 6 Feb 2020. District heating pipes are ready. The area is ready for asphalt.
As of 29 Jan 2020. Heating to keep ASTA frost-free using DTU district heating is being prepared. The platform in the front is for heating and the inflation fan, the heating pipes should arrive at the bottom of the image.
As of 22 Jan 2020. Levelling of terrain, so that the asphalt will be at the same level as the rim foundation (Foto Michael Cole).
As of 21 Jan 2020. Pool backfilling is finished, including pipe and drainage. And we now can have a first look into the pool.
