Ash Tews was an F111C flight simulator technician for 10 years in the RAAF prior to completing an honours degree in Information Technology at the Queensland University of Technology in 1998. He completed a PhD in Robotics at the University of Queensland in 2001 researching coordination strategies for multiple robots in dynamic environments, focusing on predator/prey and robot soccer. He then spent three years as a post-doctoral fellow at the University of Southern California conducting research into methods for stealthy robot navigation in observed environments. Since 2005, he has been a robotics Research Scientist at the Autonomous Systems Laboratory in CSIRO’s ICT centre.
He has lead several projects in autonomous ground robots and sensor networks. The largest project entailed automating a 20 tonne Hot Metal Carrier for material carrying duties in an aluminium smelter. Ash's research interests include applying probabilistic and pattern recognition techniques for tracking dynamic and static objects in typical indoor/outdoor industrial environments.
