A long-term cross-discipline project that aims to create a semi-autonomous robot equipped with machine learning-based intelligence and mapping technologies.
Adept Canberra's Disaster Response Robotics is a long-term practical project that brings together students across a wide range of disciplines and cutting-edge areas of research. The team aims to create a multi-purpose semi-autonomous robotics platform that can be deployed in the event of a disaster, such as a building collapse, to aid in reconnaissance and recovery. This has important applications particularly in areas where it is dangerous or impossible to send in human personnel. The project will develop a 60cm-scale tracked robot, equipped with the necessary hardware to utilise machine learning and simultaneous localisation and mapping (SLAM) technologies to provide unparalleled access to intelligent data for both operators and autonomous operation.
