Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering

Robotics and Intelligent Systems Laboratory

Our robotics laboratory has a range of mobile research robots, including ground robots and two helicopters, laser scanners, sonar sensors, cameras, and onboard linux based computers.

We have a debugging space with an overhead camera for tracking and a large touch screen, for augmented reality experiments and development.

We also have a tracking system for the lab, based on ceiling targets and a wearable camera.

Our capabilities include

  • robot programming systems
  • human-robot interaction
  • visualisation and mixed reality simulation
  • robot localisation and navigation
  • intelligent systems including artificial neural nets and speech communication.

We are working on a healthcare robotics project together with colleagues in other disciplines at the University to do psychological evaluation and clinical evaluation of robots in healthcare.
