Cloud Ground Control, Robotics Australia Group team to grow national robotics industry

AI and cloud robotics developer Cloud Ground Control has teamed up with the nation’s peak robotics body, Robotics Australia Group, to facilitate the growth of a sustainable and internationally competitive national robotics industry.

AI and cloud robotics developer Cloud Ground Control has teamed up with the nation’s peak robotics body, Robotics Australia Group, to facilitate the growth of a sustainable and internationally competitive national robotics industry.

The pair hope to drive growth in the robotics sector fostering a collaborative approach between industry, research, government, start-ups, investment, and education.

The pair have agreed to hold regular industry events and undertake collaborative research, fostering greater information exchange while shaping policy and regulation.

The partnership is expected to help position Cloud Ground Control, a product of leading Australian company Advanced Navigation, at the forefront of Australia’s robotics industry, Michal Weiss, head of product at Cloud Ground Control said.

“The adoption of drones and robotics vehicles has been at the centre of discussion for a long time and will continue to garner attention as enterprises increasingly rely on robotics to automate, optimise, and safeguard business processes,” Weiss explained.

“Cloud Ground Control is the world’s first cloud-based command and control solution that enables multi-user, multi-vehicle, and multi-domain operations.”

The development of robotic and autonomous systems will enhance industry and even keep Australians safe, Weiss added.

“The ability to remote view and control a swarm of uncrewed vehicles while gaining full situational awareness has great significance for an array of industry and humanitarian applications, such as disaster recovery, emergency response, robotics inspections, mail delivery and more.

“We are excited to start a new chapter with Robotics Australia Group. With more opportunities to engage with the dynamic robotics industry, we can empower developers to combine cloud power with robotics to create efficient, intelligent systems at scale.”

The announcement comes as the robotics industry is expecting a new wave of innovation amid the release of a National Robotics Strategy, Nathan Kirchner, founding director of Robotics Australia Group, said.

“Under the federal government’s National Robotics Strategy, a new wave of innovation is headed for the Australian robotics industry. Companies with impressive capabilities and a successful track record like Cloud Ground Control are what we need to give momentum to the field. We look forward to delivering great outcomes with them.”
