Our areas of research interest include:
- Autonomous localisation, mapping and navigation
- Vision for robotics and automation
- Sensor networks
- Biologically or neurologically inspired robots
- Indoor and outdoor autonomous aerial robotics
- Field robotics for monitoring terrestrial ecosystems
- Compliant mechanisms for locomotion, manipulation
- and human robot interaction
- Learning and adaptive systems
- Unmanned aerial vehicles
- Health and medical robotics
We have a rich collection of robotic platforms for indoor and outdoor operation.
- Rethink Robotics: Baxter robot
- Kinova: Mico arm
- Adept: Guiabot
- Aldebaran (Softbank) Nao robots (x4)
- Clear Path Robotics: Husky
- John Deere Gator with RoPro conversion (AgBot I)
- AgBot II (designed and prototyped in-house)
- Robotnik Summit XL
- Pioneer DXs, iCreate, Turtlebot
- Ascending Technologies Firefly hexacopter
Water surface vehicle
Marine Advanced Research 16 WAM-V
Inference Environmental Monitoring Boat System (x4 boats)
- YSI Ecomapper
We also have an extensive collection of sensors and computing assets and a fully equipped laboratory space for proto-typing designs.
We have a Robotics and Autonomous seminar every Tuesday at 11am. Everybody welcome, although location may vary from week to week.
Most of us are located on level 11 of S-block (CyPhy lab), which is on the south side of QUT's Garden's Point campus, see visiting us. Our field robotics work happens in a lab in O-block (agriculture, boat), and P-block (underwater).
Gordon and Peter start the lab in 2010. They are alleged to have said "We are going to do Robotics in a big way".
