Design and systems integration

Overview

QUT Research Engineering Facility systems design integration

Using innovative techniques, we design and manufacture custom and carefully considered engineering solutions for niche applications for research, government and industry.

With the ability to integrate a multitude of sensors to airborne and ground vehicles, we enable researchers to acquire data in ways not previously possible.

Our expertise in sensor and collection technologies allows us to extract the best performance from the systems we create. Our focus on ease of use and durability is key to achieving success in demanding environments. We take a holistic approach to how the systems operate out in the field to achieve the best result for our partners.

The team maintains compliance with regulatory authorities such as the Civil Aviation Safety Authority (CASA) for our airborne sensor integrations.

Key projects

Zoe 1 autonomous vehicle
How automated vehicles will interact with road infrastructure

Partners
Department of Transport and Main Roads Queensland
The Australian Centre for Robotic Vision
iMOVE Australia

Our team provided sensor and data logging equipment integration for the Zoe 1 research vehicle.

Sensors integrated included:

  • Stereo and monocular machine vision cameras
  • 360-degree spherical vision camera and light detection and ranging (LiDAR)
  • Differential global positioning system (GPS) and inertial measurement unit (IMU)

The Research Engineering Facility also provided software engineering solutions to enable efficient data collection. Learn more about this project here.
