Robot R & D

sydney bridgeSabre and its flagship Autonomous Grit-Blaster is a successful commercial start-up out of the University of Technology Sydney

This is an excellent business model that more universities around the world should be modeling: research and development in collaboration with both private industry and government, both of which are willing to continue to invest resources into the R&D spinoff.

Sabre’s partners include Burwell Technologies which makes sandblasting equipment, and the Australian government’s Roads and Maritime Services which has been involved in the development of the robotic grit-blasting technology in collaboration with UTS for more than 6 years.
