Autonomous Systems


Welcome to the
ARC Centre of Excellence
for Autonomous Systems.

The ARC Centre of Excellence for Autonomous Systems was established in January 2003 under the Australian Research Council's Centres of Excellence programme and concluded at the end of 2010.

Autonomous systems represent the next great step in the fusion of machines, computing, sensing, and software to create intelligent systems capable of interacting with the complexities of the real world. Autonomous systems are the physical embodiment of machine intelligence.

The aim of the Centre is to research and explore the nature of intelligence in problems of perception learning and control, and thus to lay the scientific groundwork for the development and application of intelligent autonomous systems.

The Centre for Autonomous Systems finished at the end of 2010. This web site is kept as an example of the work undertaken by the Centre between 2003 and 2010.

This web site is hosted by the Australian Centre for Field Robotics. Please check the ACFR web site for the latest work in this and similar fields of research.
