OC Robotics, in collaboration with Airbus Defence & Space Ltd., is very pleased to announce that they have received funding from Innovate UK for a new project to develop an Autonomous Scout Rover system for scanning and mapping of hazardous spaces.

The Scout Rover will be an intelligent machine, capable of conducting operations without human interaction, with the long-term goal of making decommissioning of nuclear sites safer and quicker.

The project combines OC Robotics’ demonstrated experience in accessing and operating in confined and hazardous environments, with Airbus Defence & Space Ltd.’s cutting-edge expertise in autonomous rover guidance, navigation, and control to develop an innovative robotic system to map otherwise inaccessible, cluttered nuclear environments and provide vital information for subsequent safety-critical operations.

It is also expected that other industrial sectors will benefit from autonomous mobile rover technology, including the Oil and Gas industry, Construction, Mining, and Precision Agriculture.

OC Robotics welcomes feedback and discussion on how the Autonomous Scout Rover will benefit your specific applications. If you would like more information on this project, please do not hesitate to get in touch with them.
