Biography/History

The Australian Robot Association (ARA) was founded in 1981 and became incorporated in the A.C.T. in 1983. It provides a means for diverse Australian organisations and individuals, who share a professional interest in robots, to have their common concerns communicated. It also provides information about robotic developments, both in Australia and overseas, in its published newsletters. Tours are also arranged overseas, for study purposes. The Association represents Australia in the International Federation of Robots. The Association was co-sponsor of the National Conference and Exhibition on Robotics held in Melbourne in August 1984, and was the principal sponsor of the conference, ”Robots in Australia’s Future”, held in Perth in May 1986. It sponsored the International Symposium and Exposition on Robots, held in Sydney in November 1988 - an Australian Bicentennial Activity. In 1998 the ARA became The Australian Robotics and Automation Association.
