In line with the Federal Government’s Modern Manufacturing Strategy, the combined funding as been awarded by METS to AMOG Pty Limited, Gekko Systems, Polymathian, and Universal Field Robotics.
The fourth round of the METS Ignited Collaborative Project Funds focuses on the application of analytics, automation and robotics in the mining industry.
According to METS the success of the four projects, with over 17 industry partners in total, is projected to deliver almost two hundred new roles, and generate a combined revenue contribution of over $100 million for the mining sector.
METS Ignited Chief Executive Adrian Beer says the quality and capability of the funding applicants is becoming increasingly more sophisticated, with a number of the solutions having broader applicability across a number of sectors.
“This round of project fund recipients demonstrates just how capable our leading global METS sector is, and what is possible within our local technology sector,” said Beer.
“We are extremely proud of what has been achieved by the project fund recipients to date, and this new addition to the project funding shows that we have a huge potential to build upon.”
