Australian Centre for Robotic Vision

Check out this Spec-TECH-ular episode of Juiced TV packed with stories about #robots and #coding featuring Centre and QUT (Queensland University of Technology) robotics gurus 👉 www.youtube.com/watch?v=ID-PGrYk0mY (watch 👀from 3:15 to 7:15 & 11:58 to 18:00) #awesome 👏🌟 QUT Science and Engineering Children's Health Queensland & Lady Cilento Children's Hospital Lady Cilento Children's Hospital School #Qutstemschools #technology #STEM

We loved welcoming young presenter, Miles, to the Centre ahead of the biggest flying robot rescue mission on the planet, the #UAVChallenge. QUT student ambassadors Anna Kalma and Centre PhD researcher Norton Kelly-Boxall also ventured to Lady Cilento Children's Hospital School to introduce students to #secrets of coding under QUT’s widening participation program, spreading a #love of STEM to primary and high school students unable to attend STEM for Schools workshops on campus.

Australian Centre for Robotic Vision

Today, on @UNFAO World Food Day, here’s food for thought! Australian Centre for Robotic Vision 👀researchers based at The Australian National University in Canberra are in the early stages of developing an asparagus picking #robot. We’d love suggestions on a name for our future robotic #hero 🤖🌎🌱 #WFD2018 #ZeroHunger #FutureofFood Abcruraltv Gardening Australia Better Homes and Gardens Australia ABC Landline
...
Meanwhile, at QUT, Centre research fellow Chris Lehnert, has turned an exciting new leaf, adding to ground-breaking work on ‘Harvey’ (aka the capsicum-picking robot prototype), developing a 3D-printed camera system with more eyes than a spider. Yep, nine eyes or cameras operating at different depths, enabling a bot like Harvey to look around obstructing leaves much like a human.
...
With the global population projected to reach over 9 billion by 2050, the Centre is focused on giving the next generation of robots the vision and understanding to help solve real global challenges, including sustainable food production. @QUT #qutrealworld @TheAustralianNationalUniversity #robots #STEM #technology #science

You could call the Asparagus robot "Spargy" - a confluence of Sparky and the Germanic word for Asparagus (Spargel). Also sounds like a sibling of Harvey.

Gus, a gutsy guy who likes to pick asparagus with gusto

Check it out! More eyes than a spider to see around leaves 🙌

Enter Big Brother! Kinova’s Gen3 Ultra lightweight robot, unveiled this month @iros_2018 in Madrid, WOW-ed crowds by demoing an innovative real-time generative grasping code developed by Centre PhD researcher Doug Morrison. #HighFive to Doug who spent tireless months creating the open source GG-CNN network enabling robots to more accurately and quickly grasp moving objects in cluttered spaces. The research arxiv.org/abs/1804.05172 was first presented at Robotics: Science and Systems in June, catching the attention of Kinova. Doug used Kinova’s ‘little brother’ robotic arm, MICO, for his research. Always room at the Centre for Kinova's new Gen3 robotic arm! #justsaying QUT (Queensland University of Technology) #qutrealworld #robots #STEM #technology #science #cool ...

About The Centre

Transformational robotic vision research centre

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision is leading the world in transformational research tackling the critical and complex challenge of applying computer vision to robotics. We believe that the ability to see, to visually understand the complex world around us and respond to it, is critical for the next generation of robots that will perform useful work in agriculture, environmental monitoring, healthcare, infrastructure inspection, construction and manufacturing.

We believe that robotic vision is the key to unleashing the full potential of robots and fundamentally changing the way we live and work.

The Centre was funded in 2014 by the Australian Research Council (ARC), to not only conduct research in the exciting new field of robotic vision but to also build research capacity, develop the research and industry leaders of tomorrow, engage with the community, and to help people learn about robotics, vision and coding. We are establishing a vibrant international robotic vision community in partnership with four Australian universities (QUT, ANU, University of Adelaide and Monash), CSIRO and five international organizations (Oxford University, Imperial College London, INRIA, ETH Zurich and Georgia Tech).

The Centre is led by Director Professor Peter Corke (QUT), Deputy Director Professor Ian Reid (Adelaide), and Chief Investigators Professor Tom Drummond (Monash) and Professor Robert Mahony (ANU).

Our Centre focuses on 5 research programs:

SENSING – Robust Vision
UNDERSTANDING – Semantic Representations
ACTING – Vision & Action
LEARNING – Visual Learning
TECHNOLOGY – Algorithms & Architecture
