Demo Day with IMDEX and Hermes and Soteria

Demo Day with Solar Energy Robotics, SCG World and Hydratune

Mining & Resources

The ability to test and develop technology at a site like the AARP is incredibly important. To collaborate with other companies and access world class facilities so close to the city, is so valuable to us.

- Peter Campbell, CFO, Hydratune


Having a facility near a capital city gives us best of both worlds - we’re able to test in site conditions and we still have access to skilled engineers in the office.

- Ben Brayford, CEO, Solar Energy Robotics

Mining & Resources

The AARP gives us access to test our technology and simulate real world environments without having to travel hundreds of kilometres or disrupt operations. It makes testing much more viable.

- Chris Lane, Business Development Executive, RocketDNA

Mining & Resources

Sites like AARP are invaluable to our industry and to any industry. Having availability for a testing facility without having to travel to an operational site and having ground to dig and test, with autonomous driving beds just minutes from the city, is invaluable. The AARP is going to be a major part of how we go forward as a business.

- Adam Cooper, Operations Superintendent WA, IMDEX

Mining & Resources

The AARP allows us as a business to collaborate and understand what others are doing in the industry. We are also able to access to multiple clients in one location to test prove and challenge what we're doing and understand what might be even better.
