Robotics, remote sensing and facilities management

by Daniel ODonohue 9 min read

The Mars Rover Project.  Autonomous robots monitoring substations.  How is this all relevant to the geospatial community? Scott Nowicki is happy to clarify. He explains the technology that enables robots to integrate detailed maps, orientate, and move around their environments as they go on their daily business and build detailed change detection maps for substations and facilities management. But the question is, can they and do they truly add value to operations where human presence is difficult or unnecessary?
