During the last 15 years, there has been significant progress in many areas related to sensing, navigation, control and machine learning. Fundamental research contributions in these areas have enabled the development and deployment of autonomous systems.
Australia has been a leading exponent in the area of field robotics with very impressive deployment of large scale automation in industries such as stevedoring, mining and agriculture. This presentation will describe the industrial outcomes of the Australian Centre for Field Robotics, some current projects in the intelligent transport system area and look to future opportunities in autonomous systems and the fundamental challenges this brings for research.
Eduardo Nebot received the Bachelor's degree in Electrical Engineering from the Universidad Nacional del Sur, (Argentina) and MS and PhD degrees from Colorado State University, USA. Fellow of IEEE and FTSE.
He is a Professor at the University of Sydney in the School of Aerospace, Mechanical and Mechatronic Engineering. He has been appointed as the Patrick Chair of Automatic and logistic in 2004 and he is the Director of the Australian Centre for Field Robotics.
Professor Nebot has a substantial track record in robotics and automation. He has published more than 300 refereed Conference and Journal publications and has given a large number of keynotes and industrial presentations. The major impact of his fundamental research is in autonomous system, navigation, mining safety and Intelligent Transport Systems.
