Collaboration opportunities for SMEs in digital manufacturing

CSIRO is exploring technology in developing intelligent assistive equipment for the high dependence aged care sector with cross-over benefits to other sectors. Substantial growth is anticipated in robotic Artificial Intelligent (AI) equipment featuring machine vision and IoT sensor integration. These devices may, for example, shadow and keep a machine vision “eye” on resident stability, intervening in risk scenarios predicted by motion and gait analytics in conjunction with other IoT information. Future Digital Manufacturing seek to collaborate with SME’s in assessing and developing this technology. For more information, contact
