Aims and Scope This workshop focuses on technologies that allow robots to be designed by software. This workshop aims to generate discussion into the design of bespoke specialized robotic systems that are poised to provide superior performance compared to currently-available options. In such an approach, robots may optimize their hardware (morphologies, sensor/actuator configurations, and the […]
Building upon our legged robot expertise developed over a number of years, we introduce Gizmo, our latest and smallest member of the Syropod family. Gizmo has been designed with state of the art servo motors to be compact yet strong enough to carry a payload of up to 2kg in to hard-to-access areas. One of the […]
Zee is a prototype hexapod robot equipped with a streaming camera sensor and a real-time 3D scanning Lidar. This robot can be operated with a standard tablet or smartphone.
Multilegged Autonomous eXplorer (MAX), is an ultralight, six-legged robot for traversal and exploration of challenging indoor and outdoor environments.
Due to their morphologies, legged robots are ideal platforms for investigating biologically-inspired approaches to control and navigation.
We are using elastic joints to make our legged robots highly flexible.
The effectiveness of a legged robot’s gait is highly dependent on the ground cover of the terrain the robot is traversing. It is therefore advantageous for a legged robot to adapt its behaviour to suit the environment.
We introduce a novel hexapod robot, Weaver, which has five joints per leg and 30 degrees of freedom overall.
The Data61 Robotic’s group at CSIRO have been developing Autonomous Ground Vehicles that are able to be used for driverless navigation, mapping, scene understanding and manipulation of loads and objects. This can be done in industrial, urban or natural environments. This area of research focuses on the combination of localization and mapping methods, motion planning, obstacle detection, obstacle avoidance […]
|The challenge Satellites need to be regularly calibrated Earth observation satellites need to be regularly calibrated to ensure the accuracy of their observations. This is done using a process called vicarious calibration, which involves ground crews walking in grids or transects and taking measurements with hand held devices called spectrometers. This happens at the same […]
