$2M Industry 4.0 Hub in Shoalhaven
The federal government has boosted the Shoalhaven area with a $2M Industry 4.0 Hub located on the Shoalhaven UOW campus.
The federal government has pledged $2 million for an industry hub managed by the University of Wollongong (UOW) in the Shoalhaven. The hub, equipped with cobots and industrial robots, will provide a collaborative environment for students, industry specialists and entrepreneurs. Cobots, also known as collaborative robots, are robots designed to work safely alongside humans, augmenting the human worker rather than replacing them. The hub, which will include a maker space, is set to position the Shoalhaven at the forefront of advanced manufacturing. Staff at the hub will be able to provide information, training and technology demonstrations to users.
