The university's robotics' centre galvanises some of Australia's top computer vision and robotics researchers. These groups are banding to create the next generation of robots that can see, understand and respond to the more complex, real-world environments.
Among the recent initiatives, teams are researching the use of robotic vision to create advanced farming tools. Robotics technology will help tackle Crown of Thorn starfish outbreaks on the Great Barrier Reef.
The QUT is part of the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence -- a coalition that brings the University of Adelaide, Australian National University, Monash University, NICTA, as well as other partnering international universities.
