Robotics Showcase Day ’24

CSIRO is organising the ‘Robotics Showcase Day’ event to be held at CSIRO’s Queensland Centre for Advanced Technologies (QCAT) in Pullenvale on the 23rd of May 2024.

This event intends to bring together three categories of crucial stakeholders of the Australian robotics ecosystem: Australian robotics SMEs, Australian robotics research labs and potential investors/buyers of these technologies from industry and government. This initial event will focus on the Australian mining and defence industry sectors and their adjacent industry sectors, disaster response and space. Future events will focus on other key Australian industry sectors. 

Event Details

Date:           Thursday 23rd May 2024
Time:          10:00am – 2:00pm AEST 

Location:    CSIRO’s QCAT / Pullenvale Site

Our primary aim is to showcase the cutting-edge capabilities of small and medium-sized robotics companies in Australia that develop and integrate systems alongside Australian robotics research labs that develop technology targeting industry applications. We intend to emphasise the multi-use potential of key robotics technologies in industry sectors such as mining, disaster response, defence and space. To achieve this, we will extend invitations to a diverse array of Australian robotics companies and research labs to present live demonstrations of their robots and systems at CSIRO’s QCAT site. We will also invite corresponding industry and government leaders to attend and view the presented technologies. Through this event, we intend to contribute towards uplifting and building stronger ties across the Australian robotics ecosystem. This is seen as a crucial step towards growing and consolidating Australia’s sovereign capability in robotics. 

Event Organization

This event serves as a networking opportunity to foster the growth of the Australian robotics ecosystem. Specific timeslots will be allocated for live demonstrations, covering capabilities such as Uncrewed Ground Vehicles (UGVs), Uncrewed Underwater Vehicles (UUVs), Uncrewed Aerial Vehicles (UAVs), as well as Sensing, Mapping, and Localization Systems. 

CSIRO is closely working with the Robotics Australia Group (RAG) and the Australian Robotics and Automation Association (ARAA) to make this event a success. 

Key Takeaways

The Robotics Showcase Day at CSIRO’s QCAT site presents a unique opportunity for Australian robotics specialists to showcase their innovations to their key stakeholder of their potential market. Emphasis will be placed on the multi-use capabilities of robotics in defence and mining sectors. Beyond being a showcase, this event serves as a critical step toward fortifying the Australian robotics ecosystem and fostering collaborations that have the potential to shape the future of technology in vital sectors.
