Robotic vehicle invention wins funding

Thursday, 02 March, 2006

An unmanned robotic vehicle with mobile inspection, detection and surveillance capabilities is one of three ACT projects awarded funding in the latest round Australian Government innovation grants.

Federal Industry Minister Ian Macfarlane today announced Canberra-based Australian Robotic Industries had been awarded a $427,051 Commercial Ready grant to finalise its unmanned vehicle project as part of a funding round to ACT innovators.

"Australian Robotic Industries' project, when commercialised, has applications for military, security and anti-terrorist activities," Macfarlane said.

The company has already demonstrated a concept vehicle and is now undertaking further research and development, proof of concept and pre-commercialisation activities to be ready for production in Australia.
