Robotics roadmap for Australia

The Sixth Wave Alliance (SWA) is a new initiative formed to develop a national robotics R&D strategy and create the critical mass required to address large-scale Australian and international challenges using robotics technologies.

“With worldwide spending on robotics expected to reach US$188 billion in 2020, robotics and autonomous system technologies have the potential to solve issues of safety and productivity across many industries.

The application of robotics into these sectors will have a positive impact for the humans working alongside them. For example, autonomous robots could be used for mapping unstable mining environments or automating long-haul freight transport.”
