QUT Robotronica

August 18 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm FREE!

Don’t miss the chance to see our robots live at Robotronica, QUT’s biennial event revealing the latest advancements and innovations in the fields of robotics and interactive design.

We will be there displaying some robots from our incredibly diverse robotics family. Our robotic creations are solutions aimed at a wide variety of challenges. Our robots have legs, wheels, cameras, sensors, fins, blades and magnets.

Built for underground, underwater, terrestrial and aerial applications, our robots sense the world, navigate it autonomously, and traverse places too dangerous and dirty for human work.

Our world leading robotics research group works with industries such as manufacturing, agriculture, mining, construction, environment, oil & gas, biosecurity, and others. Our partners include: DARPA, Boeing, Woodside, QUT, and many other government, universities and enterprises.

Our legged robots are great assets for inspection and first response due to its ability to traverse extreme environments (uneven, unstructured, unstable multi-type terrain) and complex confined spaces (industrial structures, underground structures) with the goal of providing remote in-situ sensing, mapping, sample acquisition and actuation.

Our wheeled systems are highly versatile and capable of being reconfigured with a different number of wheels for multiple applications including aerospace manufacturing to automate factory logistics.

With our Australia’ largest in-house motion capture system, we use a Kinova robotic manipulator to record ground truth enabling comparisons with various simulators to assisting researchers in the field in their selection of appropriate simulators for their use cases.

Come and meet some of our legged and wheeled robots and learn about our work in robotic manipulation.
