Jason Ford

Jason is an Associate Professor at QUT and an Associate Investigator for the ACRV in the area of vision and action with application to remote inspection and monitoring. His main research interest is in the area of robust automation in uncertain environments, with a particular focus on practical control system design for robust but high quality performance in the presence of structural system uncertainty.


He graduated from the Australian National University with bachelor degrees in science and engineering, before furthering his interest in control systems by completing a PhD at the same institution.

Since 2007, Jason has been working at QUT on control of aerospace systems with a particular focus on automated vision based collision avoidance systems for unmanned aerial vehicles, and the automation of fixed-wing aircraft for precision flight for high quality, large scale inspection of power line distribution networks.  His work with colleagues on inspection aircraft automation has been licensed, commercialised, and currently facilitates regular inspection of rural and urban power line infrastructure around Australia.
