QUT robotics researcher Distinguished Professor Peter Corke, who founded the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision, has long been recognised as a guiding influence on people from international researchers to undergraduates in the field.
Now, with his appointment as Chief Scientist to robotics company Dorabot, the Professor named 2017 Australian University Teacher of the Year is continuing to mentor a group of QUT alumni he first taught in their undergraduate days.
He will be advising research efforts at Dorabot’s research and development centre in Brisbane and coordinating with Dorabot engineers in Shenzhen and Atlanta.
The role reconnects him with four of his former QUT undergraduate students – Adam Tow, Dorabot’s tech lead at the company’s recently established research and development centre in Brisbane, and Dorabot engineers James Sergeant, Mirren King-Smith and Graeme Dicks. A fourth QUT alumnus Peter Kujala also recently joined the Dorabot team.
Adam Tow previously worked under Professor Corke’s guidance when he co-led the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision team to win the US$80,000 2017 Amazon Robotics Challenge.
