Overview

Autonomous Technology (AT) and the Internet of Autonomous Things (IoAT) are emerging technologies that bring about control and supervision with little to no input from humans.

Machines such as cars, trucks, trains and even spacecraft are progressively becoming more (Artificially) intelligent and together with various communication technology, positioning and smart sensor systems they are able to function in parallel with humans.

Who the course is for

Our particular training course is intended for learners who are a part of this new revolution, either through personal choice or through changes in the workplace. The course will educate the learner as to what, how and why autonomous technology is becoming more prevalent in our day to day lives. Due to our unique geographical location in WA, this course will also attract learners from the mining environments where Autonomous mining is driving mines of the future and whose systems we demonstrate in our training.
