Automation and Robotics
Building the machines of the future
Unmanned and remote autonomous systems and interactive robots will allow us to go boldly where no one has gone before.
Through a combination of artificial intelligence, computer vision, control robotics and signal and image processing, robotics will be instrumental in engineering projects with remote operating systems.
The Robotics and Automation discipline at UWA addresses challenges in engineering where continuous human presence is either undesirable or impossible, and where teleoperation and automation can improve operations.
With a focus on autonomous mining trucks and automation in local industry, this application-based research is highly relevant to the local economy.
This cluster's research themes include:
- Edge of Robotics
- Autonomous Driving
- Smart Grids
- Sustainable Electric Aeronautic Systems
- GPU Clusters
- Robotic Vision
- Automated Marine Species Recognition
Engineering is the creative application of science and mathematics to design solutions for global challenges.
Computing software and systems are becoming increasingly integral to our lives, revolutionising the world in which we live, work and communicate.
