Our CTO (Luke Cole) previously worked for Hemisphere GPS (orginally called BEELINE, and now bought out by AgJunction) as a "Robotics Engineer" implementing auto-guidance solutions for various quadbikes and agriculture tractors that was used by 100's of vehicles around the world.
For 10 years, starting as a teenager in 1998 - Luke Cole has also worked for leading research institutes and companies such as NICTA (now called CSIRO Data61), CSIRO, Seeing Machines and ANU Robotics System Lab (lead by Alex Zelinsky, who received a rare prestigious AO award in 2017 and was Defence Scientist of Australia from 2012 for 6 years). Luke's work included various autonomous mobile robot projects, involving computer vision, and even a self-driving car early 2000's. Back then OpenCV and ROS didn't exist, so we did a "roll-your-own" called VisLib and DROS comprised of 364,578 lines of code.
Lance Cole has also worked at NICTA and has a background of various hardware development, such as working for a contract company to the US millary (EOS), building the Common Remotely Operated Weapon Station (CROWS).
Eatons Hill is a suburb located approximately 20 kilometres north-west of Brisbane, Australia. It is located in Pine Rivers Shire. Its postcode is 4037.
Eatons Hill generally consists of low-density residential housing with acreage properties in the western portions. Most of the suburb has been developed since the 1980s. New subdivisions, often comprising McMansions, are still being built. Many of the established large homes constructed on the sprawling acreage properties behind the densely populated areas of Eatonvale and the Eatons Hill Country Club have broken real estate sales records for the region in recent times.
Eatons Hill has one primary school, and is serviced by Brisbane Transport bus routes 338 and 357.
