Our research interests are diverse, and we are continually in discussion with industry and government about how we can address their most pressing current and future challenges. We’re committed to establishing a partnership model that works for you.
A full list of all our partners can be found here with some of our collaborations and partnerships highlighted below.
Greenbio Group is working with QUT researchers led by QUT Centre for Robotics Chief Investigator Dr Chris Lehnert to develop a novel modular vertical growing solution that aims to solve some of the technical and economic challenges facing wider adoption of intensive cropping in highly urbanised environments.
Airservices: Automatic and Real-time Flight Approvals
Airservices and QUT will work together to develop new technologies and systems to give drone operators automatic and near real-time flight approvals, meaning products and services can reach people and places faster, without risking safety.
Associate Professor Niko Sünderhauf is leading the project that has been awarded an Amazon Research Award for 2020, receiving $120k in funding to investigate robotic models for navigation, manipulation and interaction.
Securing Antarctica’s Environmental Future (SAEF) is an Australian Research Council Special Research Initiative of which QCR is a part. It aims to strengthen Antarctic science, policy and governance at a time of rapid environmental and geopolitical change.
Our researchers have been providing solutions to complex aerospace problems for industry and government for more than 15 years, and have worked with Fugro-ROAMES, Ergon Energy, FrontierSI, Boeing, Thales, Queensland Government and many more.
ARMHub: robotics solutions for manufacturing, creating and design
The Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Hub is a Brisbane-based not-for-profit company established by QUT and UAP (formerly Urban Art Projects) to bring sophisticated robotics solutions to manufacturing, creating and design.
QUT collaborate with CSIRO Data61 on a number of projects and also share supervision of some PhD researchers who have received either a full or top-up scholarship through Data 61. Students are typically embedded in Data61 projects, and spend their time in Data61 labs and may access a range of mechanisms to broaden the student experience, for example, external internships and training.
