The inTerdiscipliary team at Robotics and Autonomous Systems collaborates across several institutes within the university.

Australian Centre for Robotic Vision

The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) is an Australian Research Council funded Centre of Excellence, headquartered at QUT.  The Centre brings together top researchers in computer vision and robotics to lead the world in robotic vision research. Robotic vision is the key enabling technology that will allow robotics to transform labour-intensive industries, disrupt stagnant markets, and ensure robots become a common feature of the modern world.

The research aims to enable robots to understand their environment using the sense of vision, a missing capability preventing robots from performing useful tasks in the complex, unstructured and dynamically changing environments in which we live and work.

Institute for Future Environments

The Institute for Future Environments (IFE) is a transdisciplinary research institute that studies how our natural, built and virtual environments interact, change and converge. Hundreds of researchers and students collaborate on large scale research and innovation projects with a mission to generate knowledge, technologies and practices that make our world more sustainable, secure and resilient. The Institute partners with industry, government, other research organisations and the community to deploy real world solutions to the grand challenges humanity faces this century, from feeding the world’s booming global population to managing scarce natural resources.

Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation

The Institute of Health and Biomedical Innovation (IHBI) is a multidisciplinary health and biomedical research institute devoted to improving the health of individuals and communities through research innovation. A broad range of experts and innovative thinkers focus on prevention, intervention, translation and technology to bridge the gap between health priorities and research advances.
