The public-private research hub works with the Centre for Spatial Data Infrastructures and Land Administration at the universities of Melbourne and New South Wales to develop and implement science-based policy and practical solutions, to improve sustainability and reduce emissions.

The hub is working on advances in sensor technology, connectivity, data analytics, machine learning, robotics, smart materials and reliable models, to build resilient and adaptive infrastructure systems for the mining, gas, water and energy sectors.

CSDILA director professor Abbas Rajabifard welcomed Emerson as an industry partner.

"The Melbourne University CSDILA team looks forward to working closely with them to deliver transformational technologies to address Australia's critical infrastructure needs," he said.

Emerson Australia vice-president and general manager Boris Gabin said the hub aligned with Emerson's purpose to drive innovation that made the world healthier, safer, smarter and more sustainable.

"We look forward to collaboration opportunities with all the partners, sharing our expertise and technology and advanced software solutions that will support Australia's critical infrastructure as we transition into a more sustainable future," he said.
