19 December 2013: Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision funded for $19,000,000 over the next 7 years.
Yesterday we received the happy news that our Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision has been funded for $19,000,000 over the next 7 years.
The project will be led by Professor Peter Corke at the Queensland University of Technology and involves a total of 13 chief investigators and 6 partner investigators from 10 organisations spanning robotics and computer vision across the globe.
Centre Overview: The Centre’s research will allow robots to see, to understand their environment using the sense of vision. This is the missing capability that currently prevents robots from performing useful tasks in the complex, unstructured and dynamically changing environments in which we live and work.
The entire team of investigators comprises: Peter Corke, Ian Reid, Tom Drummond, Robert Mahony, Gordon Wyeth, Michael Milford , Ben Upcroft, Anton van den Hengel, Chunhua Shen, Richard Hartley, Hongdong Li, Stephen Gould, Gustavo Carneiro, Paul Newman, Philip Torr, Francois Chaumette, Frank Dellaert, Andrew Davison and Marc Pollefeys
The organization list includes: Queensland University of Technology, The University of Adelaide, Monash University, the Australian National University, University of Oxford, INRIA Rennes Bretagne, Georgia Institute of Technology, Imperial College London, Swiss Federal Institute of Technology, Zurich and National ICT Australia.
