Excellence – We deliver high impact and internationally-renowned robotics research and technologies.
Impact – We are changing the world by providing innovative and effective solutions to challenges in healthcare, manufacturing, primary industries, education, service industries and fundamental science.
Broad capabilities – Our highly talented and diverse team have experience across the field of robotics and automation, including in the areas of human robot interaction, artificial intelligence, digital realities, robot software, sensing, speech, navigation, and hardware technologies.
Interdisciplinary – Our team of mechanical and electrical engineers, health practitioners, gerontologists, psychologists and computer scientists are highly collaborative throughout all stages of research.
Global partnerships – Based at New Zealand’s leading university, we have access to the largest research commercialisation company of its kind in Australasia, UniServices, and have established commercial and research partnerships across the globe.
Ideal test bed - Operating within New Zealand, we take advantage of the unique opportunities of a small and heterogenous market with an accessible regulatory framework – this makes us an ideal test bed for new technologies. (The NZ public sector was also ranked least corrupt on the planet in the 2016 Corruption Perception Index!)

Computer Science and Robotics are converging. As the IEEE reports, “on the one hand computers are continuing to be humanized and a large number of cyber-physical systems are being developed to act upon the physical world. On the other hand the robotic community is looking into the robots of the 21st century that are versatile […]
Commercialisation projects and systems developed by Auckland UniServices Ltd are being embedded in a top Thai research university under a memorandum of understanding signed this month. This strengthened collaboration presents an exciting opportunity for our CARES team in relation to our innovative robot and automation technologies. King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi (KMUTT) in Bangkok […]
A major new collaboration between the University of Auckland and Korea’s National Research Council of Science and Technology (NST) will enhance the already tangible benefits to the relationship with our Centre for Automation and Robotic Engineering Sciences (CARES). A Memorandum of Understanding was recently signed between UniServices and NST, allowing stronger collaborative ties between the two […]
