ACRV Robotics Workshop Mackay

ACRV Robotics Workshop Mackay

The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV) brings together Australia’s top researchers in computer vision and robotics to lead the world in robotic vision research. Robotic vision is 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.

The ACRV Robotics Workshop Series will discuss and demonstrate the development of robotic systems and it is designed for industry leaders investigating introducing robotics into their businesses, and to create connections with Australia’s leading robotics researchers.


Our vision is to develop and fast track farm robotic technology that will reinvigorate productivity through increased production and reduced costs

Robots with vision have strong potential to transform the building and construction industry, which has significant economic importance to Australia

Robotic vision systems that can see what needs to be seen, analyse those images and provide condition reports on the health of these assets

Developing advanced robots that can use their sense of vision as smart co-workers, watching what human workers do and anticipating what comes next

We are seeking to develop a robotic tool to take care of manipulation tasks while the surgeon takes care of the decision-making

We invite you to join researchers from ACRV and our partner organisations to learn more about robotics and how industry sectors are gaining competitive advantage through robotics in a rapidly changing market.

This workshop is free, however registration is required. Complimentary lunch is provided.
