Australia’s first robotics hub to drive advanced manufacturing jobs

Few things are reshaping the world faster than the emergence of robotics and autonomous systems – Queensland Minister for Manufacturing, Cameron Dick

The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision welcomes the Palaszczuk Government’s announcement to invest $7.71 million over four years to establish the nation’s first robotics manufacturing hub to create and support more jobs.

On 24 July, Minister for for Manufacturing Cameron Dick said the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Hub, would be developed in partnership with QUT and global leading-edge company Urban Art Projects (UAP). “The Hub will attract more than $10 million in additional investment from QUT, UAP, and other partner organisations to bring the total investment to almost $18 million,” Minister Dick said.

QUT Vice-Chancellor Professor Margaret Sheil said Queensland’s strong national and international reputation as a robotics leader was based on a solid suite of capabilities including those developed at the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision headquartered at QUT.

About The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision
The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision is an ARC Centre of Excellence, funded for $25.6 million over seven years to form the largest collaborative group of its kind generating internationally impactful science and new technologies that will transform important Australian industries and provide solutions to some of the hard challenges facing Australia and the globe. Formed in 2014, the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision is the world’s first research centre specialising in robotic vision. They are a group of researchers on a mission to develop new robotic vision technologies to expand the capabilities of robots. Their work will give robots the ability to see and understand for the sustainable well-being of people and the environments we live in. The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision has assembled an interdisciplinary research team from four leading Australian research universities: QUT, The University of Adelaide (UoA), The Australian National University (ANU), and Monash University as well as CSIRO’s Data61 and overseas universities and research organisations including the French national research institute for digital sciences (INRIA), Georgia Institute of Technology, Imperial College London, the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Zurich (ETH Zurich), the University of Toronto, and the University of Oxford.
