Meet our robot family
Legs, wheels, cameras, sensors, fins, blades and magnets - our robot family is incredibly diverse and have a huge range of capabilities, from mapping their surrounds, monitoring animal health, and traversing difficult and dangerous terrain.
Magneto is a multi-limbed climbing robot with permanent electro magnetic feet enabling gravity-defying movement, making this bot perfect for inspecting hard to access and dangerous areas.
Sensing the surroundings
Hovermap for exploration
Hovermap is a piece of software able to automate a vehicle, such as a drone, and equip it with the ability to sense and navigate its environment, enabling the exploration of challenging and inaccessible areas while keeping people away from danger.
Unmanned Aerial Vehicles can analyse vast stretches of terrain significantly faster than traditional methods, making them especially suited to search and rescue operations. The UAV Challenge allows new techniques, equipment and systems to be put into practise
Navigating the environment
Evolutionary field robotics
Australia's notoriously difficult terrain can make it difficult to benefit from automated robots. CSIRO’s Data61 is working to evolve robots piece by piece, allowing them to be implemented.
International Robotics Challenge - DARPA
Our Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group is one of 11 teams selected worldwide to participate in a three-year international robotics challenge funded by the US's Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency. The challenge explores new approaches to rapidly map, navigate, and search underground environments.
Wearable technology for when the expert is offsite
Part of our Guardian Mentor suite of technologies, ReMoTe gives maintenance workers in remote locations access to a virtual pair of expert eyes and hands to guide them through difficult tasks.
Experiencing exhibitions at The National Art Gallery in 3D
Visitors to the National Gallery of Australia experience a new angle on art – examining artefacts in three dimensional detail via an interactive touch screen.
Robots for therapy & education
We're trialling social robots as tools to support education and therapy for children on the autism spectrum.
How machine learning is detecting seizures in people with traumatic brain injuries
Traumatic brain injuries affect over 69 million people worldwide, with roughly 700,000 of those Australians. 30% of those Australians are likely to develop chronic epilepsy as the result of their injury, but a small and powerful piece of data-driven medtech could change that.
