Making real progress
QUT scientists have developed a way to kill COVID-19 virus on aluminium surfaces with a wet-etching technique that forms random ‘nano-pillars’ like miniscule spears, proven to have both antiviral and antibacterial properties.
QUT researchers built a virtual zoo to test the ability of robots to navigate real-world environments by seeing if it could track down the king of the jungle by using symbols and an abstract map.
