By day I’m a professor at Queensland University of Technology. My interests include robotics, computer vision, embedded systems, control and networking. I’ve worked on robotic systems for mining, aerial and underwater applications.

By night I maintain two open-source toolboxes, one for robotics and one for vision, and have just finished writing a book on robotics, vision & control which will be published September 2011.

How do you feel about robots? Learn how robotics is used today and explore how it might help solve the big issues of our time. Once only found in fiction, robots are being applied in an increasing array of ways in society, from mechanisation of industrial tasks to exploring places humans can’t go. This course starts with your perceptions of robotics, describes different types of robots, and leads into a discussion of the future: knowing we can use robots, should we?

How can we make robots see like we do? Learn how we make robots perceive the world around them in this exciting six-week course, delivered by Professor Peter Corke. Robotic Vision introduces you to the field of computer vision and the mathematics and algorithms that underpin it. You'll learn how to interpret images to determine the colour, size, shape and position of objects in the scene.We'll work with you to build an intelligent vision system that can recognise objects of different colours and shapes.

This course is an introduction to the exciting world of robotics and the mathematics and algorithms that underpin it. You’ll develop an understanding of the representation of pose and motion, kinematics, dynamics and control. You’ll also be introduced to the variety of robots and the diversity of tasks to which this knowledge and skills can be applied, the role of robots in society, and associated ethical issues.
