The RobotAssist team consists of students and researchers from CAS, a cross-institutional partnership between the University of Sydney, the University of New South Wales and the University of Technology Sydney established in 2003. With over 200 staff and research students, CAS is the second largest robotics research group in the world with a leading reputation for both fundamental research and the application of this to industry. The centre has won prizes at international RoboCup competitions including winning the Best in Class Autonomy three years in a row at the Urban Search and Rescue competition.
We are undertaking research on “Autonomous Systems in the Society and the Environment”: Building on the achievements in “Field Robotics” the centre has now embarked on a new direction with the goal to understand and develop the robotics science enabling pervasive application of autonomous systems in broad areas of society. We are addressing research challenges in:
