QUT's team, a team of undergraduates led by Matthew Dunbabin and with Bruce the boat, came overall third in the first ever RobotX maritime challenge. Final Standings from Singapore were: 1. MIT/Olin 2. KAIST 3. QUT 4. ERAU 5. National University of Singapore 6. Osaka University There were three Australian teams, none of the others placed. The QUT team also won: Best Journal Paper (tied with MIT/Olin) Environment Award.
QUT Robotics Paper Wall
The QUT robotics group has been busy publishing papers across a wide range of conferences and journals over the past few years. Below is an animation of the paper wall from a couple of years ago to the present day, just after the submission deadline for the 2015 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation.…
