QUT Centre for Robotics

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. 

Established in 2020, the Centre has been built on the momentum of a decade’s investment in robotic research and translation at QUT, funded by the Australian Research Council (ARC), Queensland Government, Cooperative Research Centres  (CRCs) and industry. The applications of our research extend to agriculture, health and medicine, environmental monitoring, infrastructure monitoring, manufacturing, mining and construction. 

Our research programs


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.
