Professor Salah Sukkarieh’s work at the University of Sydney’s world-leading Australian Centre for Field Robotics (ACFR) has taken in automated stevedoring, aerospace, mining, farming and more. 

Sukkarieh is the best known for work on agricultural robotics, which has earned him honours that include a nomination for the New South Wales Australian of the Year this year and the CSIRO Eureka Prize in 2017.
