University Capability Survey

Trusted Autonomous Systems (TAS) is conducting a survey of research efforts supporting the progression of trusted autonomous system technologies within Australia.

The investigation seeks to identify lines of research, centres of expertise, and subject matter experts to support future research and development collaborations between Australian academia, industry and government.

Relevant fields of study may include autonomy, robotics, AI&ML, or others. Respondents are free to show the relevance of their research as desired.  

What will responses be used for?

TAS will use the information collected in this survey for internal scoping of future projects and identification of potential project participants. Responses will be used to identify:

  • Australian trusted autonomous systems subject matter experts
  • Novel research with potential for translation into Australian capability
  • Research gaps in the Australian trusted autonomous systems research ecosystem

A summary of the findings relating to research topics may be made publicly available following the completion of the survey. Respondents can indicate whether or not their information can be included in this summary report.

Survey components

The survey consists of two parts requiring approximately ten minutes to complete. The survey forms can be found here: 

  • Individual Researcher Profile. This survey will be used to identify key points of contact and subject matter experts within the trusted autonomy field of study. Details of the individual researcher will not be made publicly available.
  • Research Profile. This survey be used to collate a summary of recent, current and proposed research topics being investigated in Australia. Up to three projects can be included in each submission of the form.
