Prior to remediation, hazardous sites like tailings ponds require analysis, but they're perilous environments for people to go to take measurements. Robots, however, are immune to such perils. Edmonton-based Copperstone Technologies has created a series of autonomous robots that can traverse any terrain to perform site hazardous site investigations.
On this episode we talk with Craig Milne, CEO of Copperstone Technologies about the role the company plays in offering robots as a service to mining companies and others across the globe.
Copperstone helps companies manage liabilities and safety costs associated with hazardous locations including mine waste tailings ponds and infrastructure. They do this by building field robots that can access challenging locations in a way never before possible. Their robots bring sensors or sampling payloads to site, keeping people out of harms way, reducing costs and improving efficiencies for their clients.
