A multidisciplinary research lab that harnesses the power of immersive technologies to explore complex topics through 3D computer animation, data visualisation and virtual reality (VR) immersive design.

Autonomous Vehicles Laboratory

Contains a range of unmanned aerial vehicles and wheeled platforms for the development and testing of autonomous robotic systems.


Database providing search and discovery of high-quality urban, GIS and housing datasets for urban planners.

Creative Robotics Lab (CRL)

A sister facility to the National Facility for Human-Robot Interaction Research, the CRL advances human-machine interaction through the application of creative practice and the design of novel interfaces.

Distributed Simulation Laboratory

Contains multi-modal sensors to assess human performance in real-time using data sources such as EEG, voice, video, mouse movements, keyboard logging, and vibrations. It’s licensed to operate a suite of commercial software for personnel training and education.

High-Performance Computing (HPC)

The university is an active member of NCI Australia - the nation’s most integrated, high-performance research computing environment.


The iCinema Centre develops AI-based immersive visualisations to model unpredictable scenarios. It facilitates the use of next-gen applications in contemporary art, cultural heritage, digital museology, mine training, environmental and transport simulations.

Indoor Robotics Test Facility

A large, netted area with a VICON motion capture system (MCS) allows indoor testing of drones and other robots, along with human motion studies and sensor calibrations. The MCS provides full 6-degrees-of-freedom (DOF) motion monitoring with sub-millimetre accuracy at up to 200Hz update rates.

Mechatronics Lab

The lab has five robot manipulators equipped with vision systems, conveyor system and facilities to develop custom controllers. In addition, it offers mobile robotic platforms, two large-scale field vehicles with complete autonomous operational capability, four drones with 5kg payload and a helicopter with 10kg payload.

National Facility for Human-Robot Interaction Research

Purpose-designed to host a variety of experiments investigating how people interact with technology devices, including robots.

Trusted Autonomy Laboratory (TAL)

Conducts research and experiments on human-machine teaming. The lab is equipped with a continuous audio-video capture system, a variety of sensors and interaction devices, and a range of cognitive and data analysis software.
