About us

The Sixth Wave Alliance (SWA) brings together Australian industry, research and government collaborators in order to promote and facilitate the adoption and creation of robotics and automation technology for the benefit of Australia.

SWA aims to integrate key robotics research organisations and industry partners in Australia, and provide a framework that enables a high level of R&D collaboration among the partner institutions, leveraging existing programs and investments. This allows the SWA to target large-scale, national problems of strategic and commercial relevance to Australia and internationally, far beyond what individual Robotics research groups in the country are able to achieve.

The term Robotics, in this context, is used in an encompassing sense and includes robotics-relevant areas in Computer and Machine Vision, Machine Learning and aspects of Artificial Intelligence.

SWA member organisations include CSIRO Data61, AlphaBeta, DIIS (Department of Industry, Innovation and Science), METSIgnited, NERA (National Energy Resources Australia), Australian Centre for Robotic Vision / Queensland University of Technology, Australian Centre for Field Robotics / The University of Sydney , The University of Queensland and Woodside Energy Ltd.

Other entities interested in advancing Australia’s robotics opportunity are encouraged to join SWA, contact us to learn more.

History

SWA is currently formalising its structures and affiliation process.

April 2018

CSIRO Data61 proposed an alliance to bring together key robotics research organisations, industry partners as well as government agencies.

May 2018

Following a planning workshop held at the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh, NSW with the attendance of representatives from a number of stakeholder entities, the Sixth Wave Alliance (SWA) was established.

July 2018

The formalisation of member organisations, as well as discussions with other institutions interested in joining SWA, are underway.

August 2018

A planning workshop took place in Brisbane, QLD with attendance of the founding member organisations as well as several others which will soon be affiliated.

Mission

The Sixth Wave Alliance has been created to integrate all the key robotics research organisations and industry partners in Australia, providing a framework to enable a high level of R&D collaboration among the partner institutions, leveraging existing programs and investments.

Vision

By integrating key robotics partners, the Sixth Wave Alliance aims to target large-scale problems of strategic and commercial relevance to Australia and internationally, far beyond what individual robotics research groups in the country would be able to achieve individually.
