DRL is a sport of the future and we are proud to offer this type of entertainment and one-of-a-kind experience at the home of the Arizona Diamondbacks.”

The event will also include a family-friendly zone that will include featuring DRL’s first live Artificial Intelligence Robotic Racing (AIRR) Circuit event. AIRR features autonomous DRL drones that are flown by AI technology that were developed by the 2019 Lockheed Martin AlphaPilot Team-winning engineers.
