Our robots in the field
The cornerstone of the QUT Centre for Robotics is that we are able to solve problems in a broad sphere of applications. 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. Contact our team to discuss how we can collaborate with you.
Advancing unmanned aerial systems (UAS) technologies and applications through the combination of robotics and aerospace knowledge, with a specific focus on autonomy and airspace integration.
Research and evaluation of fundamental enabling technologies including positioning, navigation, planning and scene understanding, on land and in the air.
QUT researchers are modelling the brains and behaviour of animals and insects to create smarter, more capable robots on the ground and in the air above it.
Research and development of fundamental enabling technologies including positioning, navigation, planning and scene understanding, on land and in the air.
Using digital technologies, informatics and cybernetics, and information gathered, we are able manage agricultural production systems whilst ensuring sustainability.
Utilising autonomous robotic technology to assist with assessing assets, minimise risk and collect photographic, film and other data, Our team responds to current and future needs.
Marine & environmental robotics
Advanced robotic vision and navigation technology can be applied in all environments, marine, terrestrial and lunar.
Researchers envision a near future in which cost effective robotic ‘assistive tools’ take the pressure off busy health professionals.
Mining robotics & automation
QUT develops novel robotics and automation technologies that will play a major role in improving the productivity and safety of mining operations, above and below ground.
Open Source Code
The QUT Centre for Robotics and collaborators regularly produce open source code in association with research which is available for everyone to use under the license terms.
Robotic object manipulation
Interdisciplinary teams are working alongside industry partners to advance technology and design. We continue to establish new benchmarks for industry and robotics as a field of research.
