Mining Robots Down Under

The Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) at the University of Sydney is a world-renown research group in field robotics and automation and consists of over 150 research staff and students. The ACFR has established a major new Centre for Mine Automation (CMA) to develop and implement the vision of a fully autonomous, remotely operated mine. Rio Tinto, a global mining company, has committed $21m of funding for an initial period of five years for this new Centre.

Since its launch, a world class research and technical team of more than 20 talented engineers have joined the Centre. These individuals, from locations spanning 6 continents, are involved in the research, development and deployment of technology for a fully autonomous, remotely operated mine.
