Robotics Innovation Centre

CSIRO Data61’s new Robotics Innovation Centre

The Robotics Innovation Centre has been purpose-built to facilitate world-leading robotics research across industries of strategic importance to Australia and the world, such as manufacturing, agriculture, mining, biosecurity and biodiversity to name a few.

The Centre houses:

  • The biggest motion capture system in the Southern Hemisphere
  • A 13x5m pool for testing aquatic robots
  • A significant number of field-deployable UAVs, UGVs and legged robots
  • High-accuracy robot manipulators
  • Sensors and telemetry systems.

It is a unique research facility for Australia and Queensland, that will empower greater collaboration across the robotics research sector, governments, industry and academia.

The Centre is an expansion of Data61’s robotics laboratory infrastructure in Queensland, which already includes dedicated mechanical and electronics engineering laboratories, several high-end rapid prototyping machines, large sheds for indoors systems testing, an open-air UAV flying area and outdoor testing areas including a forest and creek.

Data61’s robotics infrastructure, hosted by the Robotics and Autonomous Systems group, is open for industry use and collaborative projects.
