ACRA 2022

The 2022 Australian Conference on Robotics and Automation (ACRA 2022) is hosted by the Australian Cobotics Centre (ACC) and will be held as a hybrid conference.

Since 1999, ACRA has brought together Australian and New Zealand researchers and students in the fields of robotics, automation and mechatronics. It provides a forum to present a breadth of research activities to the wider Australasian community. ACRA is a quality, peer-reviewed conference, and is featured in Scopus, Google Scholar and other ranking engines.

The Australian Cobotics Centre was established in August 2021 and is focused on the implementation of Collaborative Robotics (or Cobotics) within Australian Manufacturing. The Centre’s research addresses both the technological advances and the human and design factors that need to be considered when implementing new technology. Funding for the Centre is via the Australian Government through the Australian Research Council’s Industrial Transformation Research Program and the industry and the university partners (Queensland University of Technology, University of Technology Sydney and Swinburne University of Technology).
