Did you know that there are sewer robots examining human waste to track drugs and diseases through cities? Smart sewage technology could measure viral outbreaks, people’s health and illegal drug use by neighbourhood. Although this is a student research project, it is exactly the kinds of things we’re going to see robots used for more and more.
While not directly gathering data on their human overlords, the Inuktun robotic camera and crawler systems have been used to do a little investigating themselves. Performing inspections and gathering samples remotely allows for detailed insurance investigations, monitoring of environmental conditions and assessment of infrastructure in places people simply cannot go.
What will evolve from Inuktun’s multi-mission, modular (IM3) technology next? Contact us with your remote inspection needs to find out!
