2nd Robotics Roadmap for Australia: workshops kicking-off around the country
The second edition of the Robotics Roadmap for Australia is about to kick-off with several workshops planned around the country, starting later this month.
Led by Dr Sue Keay, this is an extension of the first Robotics Roadmap for Australia during her work at the Australian Centre for Robotics Vision, at QUT.
Now a Research Director for CSIRO’s Data61 Cyber-Physical Systems research program, Dr Keay continues to lead industry and research partnerships to help Australia harness the benefits of the robot economy.
Building on Australia’s strengths in robot talent and technologies in niche application areas, the roadmap acts as a guide to how Australia can support a vibrant robotics industry that supports automation across all sectors of the economy.
The following FREE workshops are starting soon. If you would like to take part please register your interest here to receive updates when registrations open.
