ACRV/CISR Robotics Workshop

Date: Wednesday 17 June 2015
Time: 8:30am - 4:00pm
Location: Room na 1.418, Geelong Technology Precinct (GTP) Building (Ground Floor), Centre for Intelligent Systems Research, Deakin University, Waurn Ponds, Geelong, Australia

Robots are changing the way we live and work. The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) and Deakin University's Centre for Intelligent Systems Research (CISR) bring together Australia's top researchers in robotics, computer vision and systems.

We invite you to join researchers from ACRV and CISR to learn more about robotics and how industry sectors are gaining competitive advantage through robotics in a rapidly changing market. The Robotics Workshop Series will explore the implications for industries, methods you can use to deploy robotics to take advantage of and respond to sector opportunities with specific reference to examples of research collaboration with business.

The Workshop is designed for industry leaders investigating introducing robotics into their businesses, and to create connections with Australia's leading researchers at ACRV and CISR.


Robotic vision research at ACRV is developing the key enabling technology that will allow robotics to transform labour-intensive industries, disrupt stagnant markets, and ensure robots become a ubiquitous feature of the modern world.

CISR investigates and develops state-of-the-art algorithms and methodologies that provide practical solutions to real world problems that are encountered by systems operating with uncertainty, variability and change.
