Eyes and legs in the Amazon: protecting biodiversity using data
We’re activating our sensor network in the Amazon and testing new robotics tech at the same time – all the in the name of biodiversity.
How we’re using Darwin’s theory of evolution to build robots that can adapt and learn on their own
A design process that focuses on adaptation and intelligence is essential to building robots that can handle the challenges of outdoor environments.
Meet Our Robot Family
We’re developing robotic systems that help humans perform dangerous tasks, and expanding the Australian robotics industry
Farmers grab technology by the horns
We have a long history of farming in Australia but we’re looking at how the digital revolution is starting to change farming for the future.
Our bionic eye tech helps driverless cars ‘see’
Self-driving cars are a step closer to reality with our computer vision technology, helping them to 'see' and avoid hazards.
Saildrones: Bots sailing the seas for science missions
Our new fleet of remote controlled ocean bots are sailing away to collect data on the high seas.
Lasers, legs and nuclear weapons: how robots are learning to see and move
Our team at Data61 has been working on equipping robots with sensory payloads that are designed for specific tasks, such as inspection, or providing information to the system that’s guiding the robot’s movements.
Cold spray heats up
We're using robots to deposit powdered metal onto surfaces faster than the speed of sound.
Active Integrated Matter – The next five big science advances
Imagine a world where disaster rescue robots can readily change their body size and shape to adapt to different terrains and environments. We're taking a closer look at the next five big things in science.
The adventures of underwater robot Starbug X
Refreshed and salty from its travels along the Ningaloo Reef, our favourite underwater robot Starbug X has been shining a light on some of the secrets beneath the world-heritage waters.
What construction jobs will look like when robots can build things
With an ageing workforce, breakthroughs in virtual and augmented reality technology are expected to step in and change the worksites of the future.
