We want to share our passion for aerial robotics

Build

All our systems are custom built by our members and fine tuned for optimal performance at competition.

Code

We utilize cutting edge research in machine vision and machine learning to develop intelligent autonomous systems.

Compete

Since we are a competitive club, we represent the University of Pennsylvania in a wide range of competitions.

Mission

The mission of Penn AiR is to engage undergraduate students of the University of Pennsylvania in the development of aerial robots and unmanned aerial vehicles. The club aims to do so by providing students with the resources to construct, develop and test their own robots, travel to and compete at inter-collegiate competitions, and to connect with people who share this same passion.
