Australian Robotics Challenge: Team Demonstration

The National Instruments Autonomous Robotics Competition (NI ARC) is a student robotics competition designed to encourage development and innovation in the field of robotics. The NI ARC features competing student teams from top universities from across Australia and New Zealand, with each team developing an autonomous robot within 7 months that will ultimately compete in a live competition.

This year's competition task will focus on the logistics and transportation industry, a crucial component of many major local industries including mining, manufacturing, food and agriculture, and consumer goods. Built around the theme 'Transport and Roll-Out', robots will have to complete tasks such as navigating to a loading bay, collecting goods, navigating to drop off zones, avoiding both static and dynamic obstacles.

QUT's team of around 10 members will be demonstrating their tri-omni wheel chassis robot, which transports miniature shipping containers from boats to storage sites. You can meet the team and quiz them about their Continuous Translational Rotational Curvilinear Stepper Motor driver!
