Zebedee: 3D mapping
CSIRO has developed Zebedee, a handheld laser scanner which generates 3D maps of challenging environments in the time it takes to walk through them. Uniquely, Zebedee does not rely on GPS, and this makes it well-suited to various scientific and commercial applications.
Optimising air space for safer skies
CSIRO’s Optimisation in Air Transport Management team is developing new approaches for reshaping the architecture of the skies for safer and more efficient air travel for passengers, airlines and airports.
Image analysis for 3D phenotyping
Imaging techniques can provide faster and more accurate measures of organism characteristics than manual methods. Our 3D phenotyping group uses two dimensional images of living things to create three-dimensional models. We work most often with plants and insects.
Modelling industrial granular flows
We’re using computer modelling techniques to model the flow of granular materials such as pharmaceutical or food powders and mineral sands or ores.
Globally, services science is a new and emerging area as the services sector itself grows in importance and size.
