Project Member(s): Botten, L.

Funding or Partner Organisation: Australian Research Council (ARC Centre of Excellence Node)

Start year: 2003

Summary: Autonomous systems represent the next great step in the fusion of machines, computers, sensors and software to create robots capable of rich, cooperative interactions with the real world. The Centre brings together the existing ARC Key Centre for Field Robotics at the University of Sydney, the Department of Artificial Intelligence at the University of New South Wales, and the Mechatronics and Intelligent Systems Group at the University of Technology, Sydney. Working together, the teams will undertake innovative fundamental research and persuasive experimental demonstrations of complete autonomous systems, involving many agents interacting, cooperating and working towards a common goal. The themes interact and are brought together in two demonstrations, one focussed on the built environment and the other the natural outdoor environment.
