Robotics Roadmap

In 2017, the Centre coordinated a series of national workshops in key sectors including resources, built and natural environment, manufacturing, services (including transport and logistics) and healthcare, in order to develop Australia’s first Robotics Roadmap.

The idea behind developing the roadmap was to help identify companies operating in the space of robotics and computer vision in Australia.  Thanks to the research undertaken to create this publication, we now know that Australia has more than 1,100 companies operating in the robotics space, employing more than 50,000 people and generating more than $12 billion in revenue to the economy.

The Robotics Roadmap was released at Parliament House, Canberra, on 18 June 2018.

This is such an extraordinary legacy from the centre. What made is successful was how it was pulled together – everyone in industry and research was invited to contribute. So often I see reports done by a single institution which is fine for that organisation – but these big projects which bring everyone together are not done enough. If we are going to take advantage of technology and ensure everyone sees the opportunity for them – rather than killer robots or humans being made redundant from the workforce which is the narrative that plays out in the media – we need the vision spelled out very clearly.

So bravo to all of you in the centre – this is something everyone who works at the centre can be proud of.

Totally agree with Kylie below. Great effort and particular thanks to Sue Keay who for much of the time was the main driver.
