Giving machines vision

CSIRO continues to develop innovative automated image capturing and processing technology. CSIRO’s Machine Vision team is expanding the capabilities of visioning hardware-software, building machines able to automatically process images in real-world conditions.

Gauging audience feedback via mobile phones

CSIRO’s VotApedia is an instantaneous audience response system that operates without the need for specialised devices or infrastructure. CSIRO’s VotApedia is an instantaneous audience response system that operates without the need for specialised devices or infrastructure.

The Gemmological Digital Analyser: an automated system for grading opals

CSIRO researchers in collaboration with opal miners have developed an automatic imaging device that can accurately and objectively grade opals.

Field robotics: robots for the real world

CSIRO is developing robotic systems for industrial and research applications to improve safety, efficiency and production. Creating robots and intelligent systems that learn, adapt, co-operate, communicate and work together.

Experimental design for high-throughput bioscience

CSIRO is helping bioscience researchers get the most out of their experiments.

Emergency two-way communications for underground miners

An underground wireless communication system with pager functionality will revolutionise search and rescue operations in mines. Miners with the new technology will be able to ask for information, report their condition and location, and guide rescuers in emergencies.

Early warning health surveillance system

CSIRO’s surveillance technologies allow streams of data to be analysed by computer in near real-time to provide early warning of unusual changes.

Detecting outbreaks of flu and other illnesses

Health services need to know when a flu outbreak is normal or not so they can, if needed, quickly implement measures to contain it.

Decision technologies for the services economy

CSIRO’s research in this area enables decision makers in business and industry to understand their data and to make reliable, productive and informed decisions.

CSIROvision – a global collaboration platform

CSIROvision reveals a level of detail usually seen only on high powered microscopes. Combining high definition video and audio with an in-built teleconferencing facility, CSIROvision allows real-time collaboration across the globe.

CSIRAC: Australia’s first computer

Find out how Australia became the world's third nation to enter the digital age. CSIRAC, built by CSIR in 1949, was the fourth computer in the world and the first to play digital music.

Creating machines that sense and respond

Our expertise in computing and sensors is helping create machines with near-human problem-solving capabilities. Our expertise combining intelligent sensors and computing leads to machines and products that can interact with their environment and alter the way they function.

Computer aided drug discovery

CSIRO has developed a powerful software modelling tool, MolSAR, which has the potential to reduce drug development costs by up to US$50 million per drug.

Communication networks overview

CSIRO is developing the communication networks of tomorrow – high speed, large capacity networks both wireless and optic fibre. CSIRO is developing the communication networks of tomorrow – high speed, large capacity networks both wireless and optic fibre.

Visitor programs are available for mathematical sciences researchers and distinguished guests to collaborate with CSIRO's Mathematics, Informatics and Statistics research team.

Clever environmental management

CSIRO’s information and communication technologies and mathematical and statistical services are providing the information about complex natural systems needed to better manage our environment.

Protecting Australia’s critical infrastructure with CIPMA

Technology for modelling and analysing relationships and dependencies between Australia’s critical infrastructure systems is being built by the Attorney-General’s Department, CSIRO and Geoscience Australia.

Working together

CSIRO has developed a collaborative environment allowing people in multiple locations to work together in real-time on documents, data and high resolution images.

Algorithms for visual cockpit displays

CSIRO has filed a patent for a new type of proximity management system suitable for cockpit displays, giving pilots greater information to operate in a complex 3D situation.

Putting remote sensing on the map

CSIRO and the Department of Climate Change have developed remote sensing tools and technologies that allow Australia to accurately measure land cover change since 1972.

Care assessment platform: home-based rehabilitation for cardiac patients

Through the Australian e-Health Research Centre, CSIRO has designed a home-based rehabilitation program for cardiac patients using mobile phone and web technology.
