Project Description

Project provides a baseline proof-of-concept evidence that robotic assets can perform tasks normally done by humans in complex oil and gas and/or space relevant environments. The objective will be to increase the effectiveness of remote robotic systems operating in human-centric environments and reduce the cognitive burden on their remote human operators.
