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).
Mount Ommaney is an outer suburb of Brisbane, Australia 14 km south-west of the CBD on the Centenary Highway.
Mount Ommaney was developed as part of the Centenary Project in 1959. It, along with surrounding suburbs such as Jindalee are known as the Centenary Suburbs. Mount Ommaney is located on the southern side of the Brisbane River and the majority of the properties are located on the hill itself. A relitively large section of Mount Ommaney is forest that is protected by the Brisbane City Council and will not be developed, this includes the area next to the river that was once a stone quarry. Many of the lots in Mt Ommaney are around or in excess of 1000 square meters. Mt ommaney has one golf course/country club that offers dining over looking the course and across to the hill and creek. The Mt Ommaney shopping centre is located on the outskirts of the suburb and is opposite to the Mt Ommaney Hotel. Homes on the top of the hill generally have great views either to the CBD of Brisbane, the suburbs, the countryside on the oppisite side of the river or the river itself, Theses houses tend to be very expensive as spare residential land is rare in Mt Ommaney.
There are plenty of great dining options in and around Mt Ommaney. If you’re looking for a local café, take-away, pub or restaurant you’ll find it here.
The Mount Ommaney Centre on Dandenong Road, Amazons Central on Amazon Place and Homemaker City on Goggs Road are just some of the shopping options if you live in Mt Ommaney.
