Robots are increasingly being used in a number of industries, as an efficient, cost-effective way to execute a project and mitigate risks. Pragmatic Master uses small, remodelled robots on rugged wheels to provide close on-the-ground surveillance, targeting hard-to-reach places such as sewers, lower roads or tight spaces.

Fitted with cameras, robotic arms and cutting-edge software, Pragmatic Master robots are able to “drive” along the surface of the work site and capture any and all information and the most minute detail.

Construction and Civil Engineering

Pragmatic Master robots can monitor construction work in great detail at ground level, such as a crack on the pavement, or the path of a sewer pipe. They can provide a horizontal/street view of a housing project, as well as a view of spaces that not visible from the air, such as under a bridge or inside a house, storm water, or sewage system.

Benefits

  • Reliable and efficient camera-based analytics that is more cost effective than server-based video analytics
  • Small or minor details can be monitored
  • Integrated AI enables robot to detect, monitor and count with ease
  • Faults can be detected early to prevent major problems later, ie., a road crack becoming a pothole or sewer pipe defect turning into a leak.
  • Analyse wall plate, windows, door and internal structure damage to any house

Mining

Mining operations can be particularly unsafe and dangerous, which is why robotics play an increasingly valuable role in this industry. Robotics can perform the repetitive tasks on a mine, getting the job done more effectively while enhancing safety. Automation on a mine also allows mining operators to take on more productive roles in the mining environment.

Benefits

  • Reduce the need to have humans on the mine, thus dramatically improving safety
  • Enhance staff productivity
  • Explore underground where conditions are rough
  • Scan and analyse rock samples
  • Collect data on temperature, gas emissions and rock stability

Agriculture

Robots can automate slow, repetitive and dull tasks for farmers, allowing them to focus more on improving overall production yields. They can autonomously navigate their environment and perform actions from imaging a plant to taking a measurement.

Benefits

  • Monitor or inspect small changes in a plant or crop, such as colour changes or new plant growths
  • Track soil changes and plot these on a geo-referenced map
  • Detect and analyse defects on a plant
  • Detect and identify destructive insects or worms on plants, as a preventative measure
