Eduardo is a pioneer in the research, development, and deployment of autonomous systems and safety. He has worked with both private companies and government organisations to apply autonomous technologies to the industrial sector in Australia and internationally. Furthermore, he was responsible for introducing advanced machine learning techniques in automation and safety applications that were demonstrated and deployed in industrial operations around the world.
Eduardo led several organisations over the years. In 1999, he was named Automation Program leader for the $130m R&D Collaborative Research Centre for Mining Technology and Equipment. He also co-founded Acumine Pty. Ltd. and worked as its Executive Director from 2000 to 2012.
Eduardo was one of the co-founders of the Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR), one of the largest and most successful field robotic R&D centres in the world. He also served as the ACFR’s Manager Director from 2010 to 2020. He established the ACFR’s Intelligent Transport System (ITS) group in 2010.
Eduardo’s most recent achievement was serving as one of the partners for the $110m R&D CRC iMOVE project, which was established to address R&D in Intelligent Transport Systems.
