Robotics Australia Group
Robotics Australia Group is an incorporated not-for-profit organisation set-up to act as the voice for Robotics in Australia.
Our Vision is to build a sustainable robotics industry in Australia by supporting the entire robotics ecosystem, from the companies building robots to those researching and developing new robotic technologies, robotics educators and enthusiasts, and the companies looking to adopt robots and robotics-related technologies.
- As the peak body for robotics in Australia, Robotics Australia Group was established to facilitate the growth of a sustainable and internationally competitive national robotics industry.
- Robotics Australia Group will align current robotics activity and create a focussed, collaborative approach between industry, research, government, start-ups, investment and education to build a robust and world-class robotics ecosystem.
Robotics Australia Group is now creating an updated edition of the roadmap, to raise the profile of robotics in Australia, to identify the challenges and opportunities available for robotics in this country and to highlight our accomplishments in the creation and application of robotics technologies. The ultimate goal of the roadmap is to create an ecosystem that supports the robotics talent and technology we develop to remain here in Australia and build global capability.
The Board of Robotics Australia Group reflect the diversity and scope of the robotics industry with key leaders in the field involved to deliver outcomes for the industry.
Meet Our Board
Members of the founding Board of Robotics Australia Group include:
“With support and collaboration between industries, government, researchers and developers in coming years we will see robotic technology developed that can help maintain our living standards, protect the environment, provide services to remote communities, reduce healthcare costs and create more efficient and safer workplaces,” Dr Sue Keay, architect of the first roadmap
Australia’s Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel AO, “robots and artificial intelligence are appearing in every industry sector, with huge practical impact on the way we live, work, and plan for the future. This roadmap shows just how quickly this field is moving, and the rewards available to a robot-ready Australia.”
Senator Kim Carr, “we need to change the narrative around robots to one of job creation.” This roadmap shows just how quickly this field is moving, and the rewards available to a robot-ready Australia.”

Robotics Australia Group encourages robotics sector to complete new Government survey Australia’s peak body for the robotics industry, Robotics Australia Group (RAG) has encouraged creators of robotics and robotics-related technology to complete the Australian Government’s new survey of Australia’s Artificial Intelligence and Autonomous Systems Capability. Stemming from the National Meeting of Digital Economy and Technology Ministers in May, the survey will inform the development of a national Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Autonomous Systems Capability Map. Once completed, the Map will be provided to Australia’s digital economy and technology Ministers and agencies to highlight areas of strength and expertise to drive greater collaboration domestically and inform the promotion of Australia as a key location for research, development and commercialisation.
