Australian Centre for Robotic Vision
We are an Australian research centre that leads the world in the new discipline of robotic vision, applying computer vision to robotics. While robotics is about machines that interact with the physical world, computer vision is about analysing and understanding the world through images. Robotic Vision expands the capabilities of robots, allowing them to see and understand the world in which they are working. We believe it is the key technology that will allow robotics to change the way we live and work.
The Centre was funded in 2014 by the Australian Research Council (ARC), to not only conduct research in the exciting new field of robotic vision but to also build research capacity, develop the research and industry leaders of tomorrow, engage with the community, and to help people learn about robotics, vision and coding. We are establishing a vibrant international robotic vision community in partnership with four Australian universities (QUT, ANU, University of Adelaide and Monash), CSIRO and five international organizations (Oxford University, Imperial College London, INRIA, ETH Zurich and Georgia Tech).
