Eureka Prize for WAMbot

The Australian WAMbot robot was selected as a finalist to the Eureka prize (Australia's top science prize) in the defence category. The awards ceremony took place in Sydney, at the Hordern Pavilion.

It was an interesting event, showcasing the best of Australian science. Stiff competition meant the first place in the Defence category was snatched away by Prof Abdesselam Bouzerdoum who has done fantastic work in novel sensing systems.

Maybe next time.
