The Autonomous Robotics Research Project is a new student-led initiative at the University of Melbourne. It was created to enable engineering and IT students to gain experience in automation, robotics and machine intelligence. Project duration ranges from 6 months to 1+ years and accommodates all engineering fields.

Our Mission:

To promote and support experience in automation, robotics and machine intelligence through technical projects, research projects, and competitions.


Who are we?

Coming soon



Projects are designed by senior students and university academics for all skill ranges. Level of difficulty is broken into: Beginner, Intermediate and Difficult.

Have a look at some of the projects offered.


Project Name: DIY Phone Remote Bot

Team Size: 3-6

Create a small Smart-Phone controlled robot that resembles a small RC toy car. This small robot will be designed and made entirely by the team from scratch, from the mechanical design to electronic systems to software development. Alongside creating a miniature robot, the team will also learn basic concepts from different disciplines of engineering.
