MIDAS Laboratory

Melbourne Information, Decision and Autonomous Systems Laboratory


MIDAS is a large and complementary group of academic researchers and postgraduates collaborating across multiple Departments within the Melbourne School of Engineering in areas including automation, control, analytics, machine learning and optimization. This technical capability is complemented by work in the legal and social implications of autonomy from the Melbourne Law School and the Faculty of Science.

Our technical work includes both fundamental algorithmic development in these areas, as well as application to problems such as autonomous vehicles and UAVs, defence systems, robotics, aerodynamic systems, vehicle powertrains, power systems and large scale networks. We are supported by local and international industry partnerships and government agencies, and use these associations to help drive new fundamental research.

There are four main groupings within MIDAS:

News, Seminars, Open Positions, etc
