As we approach the end of 2021, we often take stock of the year that has just passed. We look back on the successes, look for opportunities to enhance or improve in some area, and of course we begin to look forward to a well-earned rest from our day to day work responsibilities.
We would like to thank all our Australian Cobotics Centre members, industry partners and stakeholders for their hard work, commitment and support during this year. Our unique combination of people, expertise and backgrounds is what makes us successful as a Centre.
As we head into a new year, we look forward to another E.P.I.C year, and we are excited to embrace new opportunities and collaborations.
We wish you and your families a happy holiday season!
Our Biomimic Cobots program co-lead, the amazing Teresa Vidal Calleja (Associate Professor at UTS Robotics Institute) featured in today’s episode of “Let’s Talk Robotics” with ?Nicci Rossouw.
Listen to Teresa and Nicci talk about the importance of collaborating not just with industry but across universities as well! This is how we will innovate and build capability across Australia. Our PhD researchers will work with partners for at least 12 months to understand the workplace and work with staff to help identify how cobotics can assist them with their work.
Teresa also talked about her other projects including a Cooperative Research Centres Project (CRC-P) that helps blind people to navigate with a wearable device!
