Robotics & Automation Awards 2023 finalist Advanced Navigation has unveiled a new robotics facility for autonomous systems based at UTS Tech Lab in Botany, New South Wales, Australia.
The facility is designed to scale up the manufacturing of the company’s AI navigation systems for GPS-denied environments.
This includes Advanced Navigation’s digital fibre-optic gyroscope technology, Boreas, which has been developed to provide reliable navigation for marine vessels, space missions, aerospace, defence, autonomous vehicles and flying taxis.
Xavier Orr, Advanced Navigation CEO and co-founder, said: “There is a critical need to improve Australia’s economic complexity and sovereign capabilities.
“A key step is to build our industrial capacity in high-tech, as well as drive knowledge exchange and propel collaborative initiatives between government agencies, academic institutions and industry leaders.”
Adopting a vertical integration framework, the new facility houses equipment and processes for automated manufacturing utilising machine learning to guarantee the delivery of reliable, durable and high-quality navigation systems.
In addition to the manufacturing capability, the facility will be home to research collaborations between Advanced Navigation and the University of Technology Sydney.
According to Advanced Navigation, this will expedite the commercialisation of several socially impactful technologies and drive employment in robotics, manufacturing, photonics, mechatronics and mechanical engineering and other fields.
Innovations and achievements in AI and manufacturing will be highlighted and celebrated at first-ever Robotics & Automation Awards on 31 October 2023 at the De Vere Grand Connaught Rooms in London.
