Engineering for Remote Operations
Making it easier and faster to operate technologies around our world
Engineering for Remote Operations (ERA) provides an integrated approach and solutions to the challenges of remote operations for mining development and production, offshore engineering, agriculture, health, transport, energy, water supply and community development.
The research is highly relevant to Western Australia and the Indian Ocean Rim and provides clear and measurable results for economies, industry, government and the community at a local and national level.
Although focussed on engineering solutions, research within the ERO clusters encompasses contributions from all disciplines in the Faculty of Engineering and Mathematical Sciences - engineering, physics, mathematics, computer science and oceans.
