Callaghan Innovation, Accelerating Commercialisation of Science and Technology in New Zealand.

Callaghan Innovation provides both Business Innovation Investment (Government assistance for R&D to individual companies) and Science Engineering and Technology services to New Zealand industries.

We are actively pursuing several research projects in automation, in the meat, seafood, horticulture, dairy and other primary industries as well as developing Unmanned Aerial Systems. Our interests are to apply advanced automation technology to do in field tasks, product handling, processing and sorting to increase efficiency and throughput. In particular, we deal with natural products with varying sizes, shapes, textures and colours. Our activities cover the gamut of development from initial concept to production prototype, working with technology partners to deliver viable commercial solutions.
