The testing areas

During these over 5 years of activity, Torino City Lab has developed 3 equipped test-bed areas within the city:

Urban Air Mobility (UAM)

Parco Dora is the test bed of drones operations, an optimal area both in terms of position, safety and technological infrastructures. DORALab aims to promote and support the implementation of experimentation activities on technologies used for the flight of drones, thus helping to favor research in the field of remotely piloted aircraft and the development of a sector, such as that of aerospace, strategic for the economic system of the Turin area. Recently, the DORA Park has undergone strengthening of the existing 5G infrastructure.

Parco del Valentino will soon be a second drone test area that can be used for experimentation, thanks to the Torino CTE House of Emerging Technologies.
