About the QUT Centre for Robotics
Building on over a decade of QUT and federal strategic investment, the QUT Centre for Robotics (QCR) conducts world-leading research in intelligent robotics. We translate fundamental research into real-world outcomes that benefit industry and society. Our experts are leaders in education, training and development of talent in robotics and autonomous systems, and provide leadership in technological policy development and societal debate.
The applications of our research extend to agriculture, health and medicine, environmental monitoring, infrastructure monitoring, defence, manufacturing, mining and construction.
Our Centre recognises the benefits of an environment that celebrates and welcomes diversity, as it impacts on the retention, innovation, collaboration and productivity of staff and students.

The Queensland University of Technology (QUT) acknowledges the Turrbal and Yugara, as the First Nations owners of the lands where QUT now stands. We pay respect to their Elders, lores, customs and creation spirits. We recognise that these lands have always been places of teaching, research and learning. QUT acknowledges the important role Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people play within the QUT community.
