The Mixed Reality Lab

1CSIRO, Melbourne, Australia

The Mixed Reality Lab at CSIRO’s Data61 will enable manufacturing and other industries to create ‘Digital Twins’, or virtual replicas of physical objects and systems. By comparing a digital twin of a manufactured object against the original design, we can quickly, accurately and cost-effectively identify defects and map entire manufacturing processes across a global supply chain. Defective components can be identified in real-time and corrected, while downstream processes can be adjusted to minimise the impact of delays. The lab is a unique combination of Data61’s research expertise across machine learning, computer vision, computational modelling, IoT, and CSIRO’s patented Stereo Depth Fusion technology for depth estimation.


Chris Rucinski is a software engineer in CSIRO Data61’s Computational Modelling Group based at Clayton, Victoria. Chris’ primary role is as a developer on the Workspace team with a strong interest in user experience design. Using Workspace as the development platform, Chris collaborates with a range of CSIRO teams to develop software products that model bushfires, hydraulic fracturing, ecology, mining and metallurgy.


AeRO is the industry association focused on eResearch in Australasia. We play a critical coordination role for our members, who are actively transforming research via Information Technology. Organisations join AeRO to advance their own capabilities and services, to collaborate and to network with peers. AeRO believes researchers and the sector significantly benefit from greater communication, coordination and sharing among the increasingly different and evolving service providers.
