Team CSIRO’s Data61 representing Australia in ‘robot Olympics’
Team CSIRO’s Data61 will represent Australia – and the Southern Hemisphere –in the ‘robot Olympics’ this month in the United States. Experts from around the world have spent the past three years pushing the boundaries of autonomous robotic technology to map, navigate and search environments as part of the Subterranean Challenge, run by the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).

Modelled off insects like ants and cockroaches, our hexapods are designed to go where no robot or human can easily […]
This shape-changing robot can adapt to any outdoor environment
Described as the ‘Swiss army knife’ of robots, DyRET (Dynamic Robot for Embodied Testing) is thought to be the first quadruped that can morphologically adapt its structure insitu to efficiently traverse different outdoor environments. This novel capability could make DyRET a crucial tool in future search and rescue, monitoring and exploratory missions.

Exploring QLD caves autonomously with our robot fleet
While the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Subt-T Challenge might be postponed because of COVID-19, CSIRO’s Data61 Robotics and Autonomous Systems Group undertook a home-grown challenge of their own at the Chillagoe-Mungana Caves in North Queensland recently.
How machine learning is detecting seizures in people with traumatic brain injuries
By applying sensors, machine learning and energy harvesting technology, researchers at CSIRO, CSIRO’s Data61 and Australian medical device company Anatomics could prevent the development of seizure disorders in patients that have undergone decompressive surgery (craniectomy) through the creation of a data-driven and highly personalised treatment plan.
Designing robots to detect and deactivate landmines
There have been 122,000 landmine casualties since global tracking began in 1999, with 25% occurring between 2015 to 2018 and a substantial percentage children. Demining […]
