Peter Corke (born 24 August 1959) is an Australian roboticist known for his work on Visual Servoing, field robotics, online education, the online Robot Academy and the Robotics Toolbox and Machine Vision Toolbox for MATLAB (matrix laboratory).


In 1984 he worked at CSIRO, formerly the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, on robotics.


In 1995 he moved to Brisbane and established a program of research into mining automation focused on Dragline excavators, rope shovels and load-haul-dump (load-haul-dump) units.


In 1996, Corke co-authored an early tutorial paper and later proposed the partitioned approach to visual control.


He served as Research Director of the Autonomous Systems Laboratory of CSIRO's Information and Communications Technology Centre (ICTC), from 2004 to 2007.From 2005 to 2009 he worked on wireless sensor network technology, was a co-developer of the Fleck wireless sensor node, and investigated applications to environmental monitoring and agriculture, and virtual fencing.


He was a senior principal research scientist when he left to take up a chair at the Queensland University of Technology in 2010.From 2009 to 2013, he served as editor-in-chief of the IEEE's Robotics & Automation magazine.
