CHANGED TRAFFIC CONDITIONS WILL IMPACT ACCESS TO QUT CAMPUS PARKING FOR ROBOTRONICA

The Queen's Wharf construction will affect traffic and access to the CBD on Saturday 19 and Sunday 20 August. The work will occur on Margaret Street, between George and William streets requiring the closure of the Margaret Street off-ramps from the Riverside Expressway to George Street.

QUT - Robotronica

Award winning robotic armsfamily icon

Join us for a glimpse into how robots can engage with and influence the world around them.

This interactive demonstration gives insight into how robot arms of the future will help with back-breaking work such as automated fruit harvesting and warehouse packing. On display will be a range of robotic arms including Cartman, a custom-built Cartesian robot. With six degrees of articulation and both a claw and suction gripper, Cartman gives us more flexibility to complete the tasks than an off-the-shelf robot can offer.

Test your skills with interactive demos allowing you to get a feel for how challenging it is for a robot to interact with the world.

The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision at QUT has recently been awarded first prize at the 2017 Amazon Robotics Challenge in Japan.
