Aero International Aerial Robotics Competition Team

Who we are


We are a bunch of robotics and software engineering students at Olin, who are excited about drones! Flight and Autonomy had been humanity's dreams for ages, and now they're finally coming together. The field of aerial robotics is rapidly advancing like never before, and we are absolutely thrilled to be part of imagining the future! Our team consists of about 10 talented and passionate engineering students who would really like to make drones a reality.


What we’re doing

The IARC(International Aerial Robotics Competition), our team’s namesake, is an event held every year to push the horizon of modern aerial robotics with seemingly “impossible” missions. This year, we are tackling Mission 8, where humans and a swarm of autonomous drones collaborate in a simulated spaceship environment to repair the ship while fending off adversarial drones that shoot lasers at you!


Help us fly!


As much as we are excited about the project, we need your help to make it happen: We need funding for both technical components like drones and onboard sensors, not to mention logistical overheads such as registration and travel costs. Together, we could reach heights neither of us could reach alone! Click on "Donate Now" today and help us fly at the upcoming competition. Your IARC support as part of your annual support to Olin is greatly appreciated.

Choose a giving level



Slowly, but surely, the destitute students felt their bodies lifting from the ground. When they looked below -- none other than a swarm of tiny minicopters, working together to get up to the atmosphere!



Four wings spread across -- the students gazed at the figure in awe as a bird of grace disappeared afar into the horizon, a hundred dollars left in its wake.



When the students opened the door one morning, they found a bag full of money, totaling two hundred dollars. "Who could it have been?" they wondered; as they closed the door, only the distant echo of the propellers ripping through the air hinted at the mysterious occasion.



Students wept in joy as money rained from the sky!
