About Us

The Industrial AI Group @UoA dedicates to developing translatable intelligent system technologies for transforming the workplace into a more efficient, enjoyable, and sustainable environment. We focus on cognitive sensing, reasoning, control, and human interaction technologies with applications to manufacturing processes, assembly, human-machine collaboration, and quality assurance.

Our work has been sponsored by prestigious funding bodies (e.g., National Science Challenge and Callaghan Innovation) and leading high-tech companies (e.g., Spark, Nokia, Oasis Engineering, and Fletcher Steel), with a total portfolio of >NZD $2.5 million. Several pieces of work have been adopted in the commercial world.
