CSIRO’s Data61 has appointed Dr Sue Keay to lead its Cyber Physical Systems program, which is focused on the “connection of digital devices to the physical environment”.
Robots are hard at work all over Australia. They are pulling tonnes of iron ore hundreds of kilometres across the Pilbara. They are swimming around the Great Barrier Reef killing environment damaging starfish.
Led by the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision – with additional backing from Queensland University of Technology and Advance Queensland – the roadmap’s organisers aim to emulate the success as similar initiatives in the US and Europe.
