Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) at QUT

The Robotics and Autonomous Systems (RAS) Discipline’s key goal is to create robots and autonomous systems that can operate in and interact with the world in the same complex ways as humans. Our projects include and are applied to:
- Robotic vision;
- Sustainable agriculture;
- Mining automation;
- Lifelong autonomy for robots;
- Neuroscience and robotics;
- Flying, ground and underwater robotics;
- Medical and healthcare robotics.
Researchers from the Discipline lead the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Robotic Vision (ACRV) and play a major role in aerospace, agricultural and medical automation.

QUT has recently become a member of Mining3, and the RAS will provide leadership for its Mining Automation program.
