[Robot voice] Welcome to UTS Tech Lab
UTS Tech Lab is designed to change the way universities and industry work together in Australia
Creating a flexible project-focused approach to commercial outcomes and research impact
It's a space where industry and government collaborate with specialist UTS staff on multidisciplinary research that has a real and sustained impact
The 9000 square metre facility includes multidisciplinary labs across engineering and computer sciences we have collaborative workspaces, meeting and seminar rooms, which are all available to our industry partners
As well as state-of-the-art facilities our partners have access to global experts and rising talents through UTS interns, PhD students and graduates
Tech Lab has advanced capabilities to support projects in digital transformation including IOT, artificial intelligence, robotics industry 4.0 and smart infrastructure
The 5g lab is developing 3D printed antenna and integrated circuits to enable Internet of Things - or IOT – innovation
Other specialist facilities include a multi-axis simulation table that enables large-scale testing of structures including earthquake research
The academic team working with Sydney Water is developing advanced robots with laser profiling and sensing technologies to identify water pipe defects before critical failure, which is saving millions of dollars
Plus the largest antenna chamber in Australia supporting research in communications and 5g
and the most comprehensive acoustics engineering facility in New South Wales
The opportunities at Tech Lab are endless
By bringing together a diversity of disciplines and expertise we're creating new ways of working, new ways of thinking and new ways of imagining what is possible for our industry partners
