16 Funded PhD Positions at the Australian Cobotics Centre (ACC)
The interdisciplinary Australian Cobotics Centre (ACC) brings together more than 25 researchers and 16 PhD students from the University of Technology Sydney, Queensland University of Technology and Swinburne University. Our research focuses on implementing Collaborative Robotics (or cobotics) within Australian Manufacturing. The aim is to create a safer, more efficient and globally competitive manufacturing industry. Our objectives are to:
- Improve the collaborative robotics capability within Australian manufacturing and,
- Train researchers, engineers, technologists and manufacturing leaders with the skills and expertise needed to apply collaborative robotics technology
Our researchers and industry partners work together, and as a result, end-users are always at the forefront of our research. The research programs address both the technological advances and the human and design factors that need to be considered when implementing new technology. This multi-disciplinary and multi-industry approach will result in improved safety, quality assurance, production efficiency, process innovation and workforce readiness across the industry.
