Partner with us

The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision is actively seeking partners to help us apply robotic vision to solve a range of real world problems.

The five main application areas that we are most interested in include:

  1. Manufacturing
  2. Construction
  3. Infrastructure (inlcuding asset management)
  4. Agriculture (including environmental monitoring)
  5. Medical and Healthcare

WHAT-WE-DO

Technology demonstrators

To illustrate how robotic vision can be applied in our four key application areas, the ACRV will create a series of technology demonstrators.

These will showcase how the our research can transform industry and allow humans and robots to work side-by-side.

The process for applying for entry to a PhD program in robotic vision is described here. QUT usually only accepts applications once per year but as robotic vision is a priority area for QUT we are able to accept PhD applications at any time.

Please be sure to nominate one of our robotic vision researchers as your potential PhD supervisor.

A summary of our PhD project topics can be found here.   These fall within one of the following 6 project areas.

  1. Projects RV1  and AA1 (Prof Peter Corke)
    • Novel vision sensors, novel camera configurations, computational photography to provide 2D and 3D information for robots under challenging conditions such as low light and very high intensity dynamic range.
  2. Project RV2 (A/Prof Ben Upcroft)
    • Develop techniques to control how the image is sensed and processed, based on high level semantic scene understanding or context.
  3. Project RV3 (Dr Michael Milford)
    • Robust visual place recognition and learning algorithms and architectures such as deep learning.
  4. Projects VA1 and AA1 (Prof Peter Corke)
    • Vision as a networked service, real-time distributed vision systems, visual geometry and the modular specification and implementation robotic tasks (visual servoing, visual behavior based control, task decomposition, resource allocation, control theory).
  5. Projects VA3 an SV2 (Prof Gordon Wyeth)
    • Vision for human robot interaction, preferably in the context of semantic understanding of the environment; understanding and predicting human intent; and/or planning robot action to accommodate humans.
  6. Agricultural Robotics (Prof Tristan Perez)
    • Optimal design of robotic vehicles; Robot guidance, navigation, and motion control; Computer vision for weed and crop detection and classification; Vision-based robotic manipulation; Design and control of robotic manipulators for crop management applications

ACRV is offering up to 40 PhD places for Australian and international postgraduate students to support research in robotics, autonomous systems and computer vision. Our overarching goal is to create autonomous robotic systems that can use the sense of vision to operate in the complex real-world of humans. The ACRV has some of the world’s best talent in both robotics and computer vision research. Full scholarships will be offered to exceptional candidates while at some nodes applicants who receive Australian Postgraduate Awards (APA) or International Postgraduate Research Scholarships (IPRS) will be eligible to receive top-up scholarships. PhD applications are open for applications until 30/09/2017. We are looking for graduates within the broad fields of electrical engineering and computer science. Your PhD with ACRV will offer opportunities to:

  • Collaborate with world-leading researchers
  • Travel between Centre nodes within Australia
  • Travel overseas to attend an international conference
  • Complete an internship in industry or research

You will be based at one of four locations in Australia depending on your main area of research interest. At each location there are different projects and project combinations running. Please look at the project descriptions, in brief below with links to extra detail, and the information about the different universities where you would like to apply to study. PhD places may also be available at the University of Adelaide, Australian National University (ANU), Monash University, and Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
