R&D Services and Consulting

We have considerable experience commercializing our research outputs and we have worked with numerous industry partners in the fields of flexible manufacturing, industrial automation, and service robotics. Although we typically work with industry via R&D contracts we also offer consulting services on a case-by-case basis. If you are interested in collaborating with us please contact Dr. Minas Liarokapis (minas.liarokapis@auckland.ac.nz).

Our research has been funded by industry partners in New Zealand, Germany, USA, and Japan, as well as by the University of Auckland Faculty Research Development Fund, the Center for Automation and Robotics Engineering Science, and the IEEE Robotics and Automation Special Interest Group on Humanitarian Technology (RAS-SIGHT). Dr. Liarokapis has generated grants totaling >$2,600,000 as Principal Investigator (PI) and has participated in grants totaling >$1,275,000 as an Associate Investigator (AI). Most of our R&D funding comes from industry.
