Robotic Offshore Drilling

Posted 26 Dec 2007 at 15:40 UTC by Rog-a-matic Share This

SINTEF scientists in Trondheim, Norway are building a robot-operated offshore oil and gas platform. An array of remotely-controlled robot arms will move up/down, left/right, in/out like robots in a warehouse, all while fancy collision avoidance software does its magic. Tools at the robot's disposal include measuring devices, inspection cameras, giant drills, and other tools needed to run and maintain the rig. Deployment goal: 2015. The result should be reduced costs and reduced risk for humans.
