The new ARC Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision, based at the Queensland University of Technology, will receive $19 million for its seven-year research program looking into the next generation of robots.

Centre Director, Professor Peter Corke said the Centre will form one of the largest groups of its kind in the world, and will become a focal point for international activity.

"This Centre will deliver the science and technologies that will turn cameras into powerful sensing devices capable of understanding and responding to their environment, and enabling robots to operate reliably over long periods, in complex unstructured surroundings where they will interact with humans as well as objects, many of which will require delicate handling."
