Zames Seminar Room - MC437

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Autonomous Systems (CAS) was established in January 2003. The Centre brings together three leading research groups in Australia; the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) at the University of Sydney, the Artificial Intelligence Group at The University of New South Wales (UNSW) and the Mechatronics and Intelligent Systems Group at the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS). The objectives of the Centre are to undertake innovative fundamental research based around the four themes of perception, control, learning and systems, and to build persuasive experimental demonstrations of complete autonomous systems that integrate the results of these fundamental research themes. This talk will examine current work underway at CAS in the development of autonomous systems for land, air and underwater applications. It will focus in particular on recent work in the development of techniques suitable for modelling complex marine environments such as coral reefs.
