This forum discovers how the University of Technology, Sydney (UTS) uses computer graphics to process complex data and streamline manufacturing.

UTS Data Arena 

UTS Data Arena’s highly visual 360-degree data visualisation system assists industry leaders and government bodies in identifying patterns, discovering trends and steering research.

At Data Arena, you’ll see complex information simplified with computer graphics and learn how it’s applied to manufacturing processes to speed up prototyping and improve efficiencies.

Some highlights at UTS Data Arena include:

  • Transport passenger analysis to determine ‘pinch points’
  • A 3D walk around the building to test materials, colours and layouts

UTS Centre of Autonomous Systems

The UTS Centre of Autonomous Systems (CAS) is an internationally acclaimed robot research centre. It specialises in the research and building of robots that create positive change for government, industry and the wider community.

CAS research and robots are used globally and locally. At CAS you’ll see how robotics is applied to manufacturing processes to help organisations improve worker outcomes and provide competitive advantages.

Some highlights at CAS include:

  • An inspection and sandblasting of Sydney Harbour Bridge
  • Advanced condition assessment and failure-prediction technologies for optimal management of critical pipes

UTS ProtoSpace – Additive Manufacturing

UTS ProtoSpace is the largest additive manufacturing facility in Australia.

It provides access to 3D printers and equipment, allowing users to build prototypes and functional parts for testing in a variety of materials, including resin, metal, ceramic and concrete.

ProtoSpace is currently focused on exploring new applications for additive manufacturing and bringing Industry 4.0 to Sydney’s CBD.

Some highlights at ProtoSpace include:

  • Demonstrations from different machines with examples of finished products in a variety of materials
  • Talks from industry and academic leaders on how 3D technology is currently being used and how it will be used in the future
