Work with us

Join more than 300 organisations who have worked with the Institute for Intelligent Systems Research and Innovation (IISRI) to develop customised solutions to meet industry needs.

Situated at Deakin University’s Waurn Ponds campus, IISRI is part of the world-class Future Economy Precinct, where businesses combine their capabilities and ideas with Deakin’s ability to deliver innovative real-world solutions to drive commercial outcomes.  

IISRI’s multi-million-dollar facility is the first university facility to be equipped to handle zone 4 classified, secret-rated defence research. It is also home to the Motion Simulation Lab, which accommodates various mobile and industrial robots and the next generation, haptically enabled Universal Motion Simulator (UMS) that can replicate high-fidelity manoeuvres for land, air and sea vehicles. 

The facility also houses IISRI’s CYCLONE High-G Centrifuge System –– an Australian-first, simulator-based acceleration tool capable of G-tolerance training. The system evaluates psycho-physiological effects on astronauts and pilots under varying gravitational conditions to mitigate the threat of G-LOC (G-induced loss of consciousness).

What are the other reasons you should choose IISRI as your research partner?

  • We are part of Deakin – Australia’s number one university for equity held in start-up and spinout companies (SCOPR).
  • Deakin is a national leader in research commercialisation and collaboration, with a strong intellectual property (IP) pipeline and an enviable track record in successful industry engagement for positive impact
  • We have a collaborative team of close to 50 researchers who are experts across a range of intelligent systems disciplines
  • We have worked with more than 300 national and international organisation and governments, such as the Australian Defence Force, Australian Electoral Commission, Boeing, Ford Australia, Lockheed Martin and Telstra.

Let IISRI help you to stay ahead of the competition, innovate your business or develop a new idea.

Research: Leading translational research in engineering and technology of intelligent systems

IISRI focuses on translational intelligent systems research through understanding fundamental knowledge, formulating new concepts and enhancing existing principles pertaining to both hardware and software advancements of intelligent systems.

Our researchers strive to derive new knowledge and principles related to emerging engineering and technologies in intelligent systems and facilitate the design and development of intelligent solutions for undertaking real-world application.  The results set a foundation for the subsequent goals.

Development: Creating novel and innovative intelligent solutions for real-world problems

IISRI creates intelligent solutions by adopting a holistic engineering lifecycle approach while working in partnership with the stakeholders from government, industry, and community.

We are a preferred research partner because we are a one-stop hub offering capabilities and facilities to design and develop both hardware devices and software packages for the required solutions from start to finish.

Commercial-Ready: Delivering value-added and commercial-ready intelligent products and services

IISRI has a proven track record of delivering commercial-ready products and services for immediate uptake by commercial partners.

By partnering with IISRI you will access knowledge and expertise that isn’t as readily available at other universities or research institutes. Most research and development centres focus on proof-of-concept prototypes and/or demonstrators, however we take intelligent systems research and development further and aim to develop a product that is ready for deployment in the commercial world.

IISRI researchers bring our intelligent products and/or services to a high Technology Readiness Level (TRL) for our partners.  We work closely with you to rigorously test and evaluate our products and/or services, and ensure that they are agile, adaptive, and applicable in dynamic, real-world environments.

Research – Development – Commercial Ready

IISRI has a proven track record of achieving outstanding results in its three key pillars of Research, Development, and Commercial Ready. We work closely with companies, government and community to deliver products and services that are agile, adaptive and applicable in dynamic, real-world environments. Contact us to learn more.
