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.

Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF)

ANFF is a national network of open-access micro-and nano-fabrication labs. It is spread over 8 nodes, encompassing 20 universities and CSIRO, supported by 130 staff and maintains over 500 tools. ANFF-NSW focuses on developing devices and structures for quantum technologies, together with advanced electronics and photonics.

Autonomous Vehicles Laboratory

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

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.

High-Performance Computing (HPC)

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

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.

Mark Wainwright Analytical Centre (MWAC)

The Centre is made up of 17 labs and facilities, supported by scientific and technical research staff. It allows for the structure and composition of biological, chemical, and physical materials to be studied. MWAC includes a consulting arm that offers a problem-solving service for commercial customers. 

Microfluids Lab

Conducts flow characterisation and temperature measurement on the micro-to-nano scale and includes an inverted epifluorescent microscope, microPIV system, Peltier cooled fluorescent camera, Nanosight LM14 with syringe pumps and various temperature and pressure sensors with data loggers.

National Facility for Human-Robot Interaction Research

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

School of Electrical Engineering & Telecommunications

The school operates multiple labs including: 

  • Audio anechoic chamber 

  • Australian Centre for Renewable Energy has equipment to monitor the characteristics of inverters from renewable sources such as PV. 

  • Communication Network Labs facilities performance analysis of end terminals and contains a large-scale simulation of networked systems. 

  • High Voltage Lab offers testing (AC, DC, and impulse voltages), partial discharge detection equipment, transformer ratio arm bridges, recover voltage testing, thermal testing, and variable frequency testing of insulation equipment. 

  • Mobile Communication Labs include facilities for testing GSM, IS-95, 3G, PCS RF and antenna design. 

  • Photonics facilities for fabrication of polymer and silica optical fibres and optical waveguides. 

  • Power Electronics & Drives Lab contains invert/conductor systems, data acquisition systems and finite element analysis software for magnetic, thermal, and electric field modelling. 

  • Systems Neuroscience & Biomedical Engineering allows for the study of human movement control systems including electrical activity from muscles, nerves and the brain and measurements of joint angles and forces.

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.

Wireless Communications Lab (WCL)

The lab contains system design and test facilities including a microwave chamber, spectrum analysers, vector signal generators, FPGA development platforms, and software-defined radio platforms.
