2014 ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision
Robots are vital to Australia's future prosperity in the face of high relative wages, low or decreasing productivity, and impending labour shortages. However the work and workplaces of our most important industries are unstructured and changeable and current robots are challenged by their inability to quickly, safely and reliably "see" and "understand" what is around them. The Centre's research will create the fundamental science and technologies that will allow robots to “see” as we do, and overcome the last barrier to the ubiquitous deployment of robots into society for the benefit of all.
Funding: $19 million over 7 years
