Poster: Robotic Roadworks & Excavation System (RRES)

SGN’s NIC Robotic Roadwork Excavation Systems (RRES) project has developed a system that automates the excavation process in both rural and urban environments by combining cutting edge robotics, advanced custom tooling, and artificial intelligence. As RRES uses soft touch excavation technology, the project aims to open the market for expanding future inspection, maintenance, and repair operations. Following successful trials, we’ll look at how the system performed and what this means for utility owners.
