LYRO Robotics is an Australian deep-tech startup building intelligent robots.
LYRO is creating the brain, the eyes, and the hands for the next generation of intelligent robots. We are a venture-backed, Australian robotics company created by world-leading experts in robotic vision, deep-learning and grasping that formerly worked at the Australian Centre for Robotic Vision (ACRV). We are the people behind “Team ACRV” the team that won the Amazon Robotics Challenge, an international order fulfilment competition, with our robot Cartman.
LYRO builds next generation robots that learn, adapt, and deal with unpredictable scenarios and can be used in applications including agriculture (e.g., fruit picking), retail (e.g., shelf packing), warehouses for order fulfilment) and possibly waste management.
LYRO founders are former researchers and technical leads from the QUT based, Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence in Robotic Vision, the $25.6 million venture and the world’s first robotic vision research centre.

Juxi Leitner, world-leading expert in robotic grasping turned entrepreneur. A decade of research experience in #Robotics, #ComputerVision and Artificial Intelligence (#AI). Attracted significant amounts of funding and managed research teams of various sizes before founding LYRO Robotics. Been an active part in the startup scene of various countries (Austria, Switzerland, and now Australia).
Nicole Robinson, contributed to university-led research for a decade, with a focus on human behaviour and its translation into software agents and robotic systems to work towards a human-robot society. Scientific lead for QUT’s Humanoid Robotics between 2018-20. She was promoted to become the youngest Chief Investigator (CI) and Program Leader of Human Interaction in the QUT Robotics Centre.
Norton Kelly-Boxall, an experienced mechanical engineer with more than 4 years of experience, he was the project lead for the mechanical team for the Amazon Robotics Challenge winning robot ‘Cartman’.
