Russian engineers have developed a navigator for unmanned special vehicles

23 Jun '21
Engineers from the NTI Competence Center at the Innopolis University (Tatarstan) have created a navigator for unmanned construction equipment. It is planned to test the new development at the facilities of Gazprom Neft PJSC.

The navigation system consists of a drone with a camera, an autopilot in the vehicle's on-board computer, the navigator itself in the form of a tablet, and a server where data on all routes is stored and processed. The drone will fly around the territory, creating a map of the area taking into account the features of the relief and sending the data to the server.

During the tests, which will last until the end of 2021, the work of the system will be controlled by a person in the cab of special equipment. According to the developers, the system is aimed at freeing employees from routine work, as well as reducing the costs of the construction company.
