Work with us

Highly autonomous robots assisting humans.

#Project Types  |  #Access our infrastructure  |  #Solutions by industry

We partner with small and large companies, government and industry in Australia and around the world to develop and mature robotic technologies from concept to commercialisation.

Our systems provide scientific, social and economic benefits through cutting-edge science, deeper understanding of natural and built environments, increased productivity and human safety, and augmentation of human capabilities.

For more than 25 years, we have been pushing the boundaries of field robotics research and development, from fundamental research into evolutionary robotics and flexible systems, to bespoke and customised robots for challenging inspection and autonomous haulage tasks, to the world’s best 3D LiDaR SLAM software.

Our projects

We are ready to help you solve your biggest challenges, starting with a pre-feasibility, progressing to prototype system development, testing & validation, and tech transfer.

We love to take on challenging unsolved problems, whose solution will have a strong positive social, environmental and economic impact.

Our significant portfolio of robotics background IP, such as hardware designs and software stacks can be leveraged to accelerate system development. We are uniquely positioned to leverage the extensive technical and domain expertise in Data61 and other parts of CSIRO.

Below we provide a rough guideline for typical project types, costs and outputs. This will vary by project, depending on the specific requirements, and we will work with you to tailor a project to your needs.
