Our CTO (Luke Cole) previously worked for Hemisphere GPS (orginally called BEELINE, and now bought out by AgJunction) as a "Robotics Engineer" implementing auto-guidance solutions for various quadbikes and agriculture tractors that was used by 100's of vehicles around the world.
For 10 years, starting as a teenager in 1998 - Luke Cole has also worked for leading research institutes and companies such as NICTA (now called CSIRO Data61), CSIRO, Seeing Machines and ANU Robotics System Lab (lead by Alex Zelinsky, who received a rare prestigious AO award in 2017 and was Defence Scientist of Australia from 2012 for 6 years). Luke's work included various autonomous mobile robot projects, involving computer vision, and even a self-driving car early 2000's. Back then OpenCV and ROS didn't exist, so we did a "roll-your-own" called VisLib and DROS comprised of 364,578 lines of code.
Lance Cole has also worked at NICTA and has a background of various hardware development, such as working for a contract company to the US millary (EOS), building the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS).
COLETEK's team all has a background in narrow/weak/applied (not general/strong) artificial intelligence (AI). General AI or Strong AI is a long way away! We have built systems around a wide range of skills and technologies such as:
These technologies can be used for various applications such as:
Monash is a small town in the Riverland area of South Australia. It is on the Sturt Highway between Barmera and Renmark.
Monash was proclaimed in 1921 and is named after General Sir John Monash, a World War I army commander. The primary industry is irrigated horticulture and viticulture.
Monash is in the Berri Barmera Council, state electoral district of Chaffey, and federal Division of Barker.
Monash is best known in South Australia as the home of a major adventure playground for adults as well as children with tall, fast and twisty slippery dips and other equipment. This was built be the local engineering company, and open for free public use. Concerns about public liability led to its scaling down and eventual closure. It reopened in 1996 without the high towers, but with better picnic facilities and less "dangerous" equipment now including a giant maze.
