Working with government agencies and defence groups, the centre is contributing to projects in the areas of perception, path planning, battlefield casualty care and detection.
Our industry partners: Agency of Defence Development
The Australian Centre for Field Robotics is working with the Agency of Defence Development in South Korea on real-world implementations of simultaneous localisation and mapping techniques. Their focus brings together perception and path planning in dynamic environments.
Our industry partners: Defence Science and Technology group
This Competitive Evaluation Research Agreement project with the Defence Science and Technology group is investigating the use of low-bandwidth communications in decentralised path planning, along with cognitive radar techniques applied to active perception. This work will be demonstrated through multi-platform trials incorporating elements of manned–unmanned teaming.
Our industry partners: Nepean Clinical School
The team led a feasibility study into automating battlefield casualty care and evacuation for the Defence Science and Technology group. The project had a number of outputs, including the design of a new form of pneumatically-assisted casualty diagnosis/stabilisation and sustainment.
Our industry partners: Sensing Pty Ltd, in partnership with NSW Corrective Services
The team has been developing new radar technology to detect objects being thrown into prisons. The project uses the latest automotive radar technology in a multi-static manner to detect tennis balls (the object of choice to smuggle contraband in NSW) as they are thrown over the prison fence.
