Welcome to a community for questions, answers, discussion, collaboration, and networking around Unmanned Systems for the Oil & Gas Industry. Unmanned Systems are remotely operated or autonomous marine, air, and land vehicle systems, software solutions, and power systems. Remotely Operated Vehicles (ROVs) have been used by the Oil & Gas Industry for ~40 years for subsea operations.
Over the last several years, drones are just starting to be used for a number of applications such as surveying and inspections. In the near future, autonomous cars, trucks, ships, and aircraft will change the logistics landscape in ways we can only just begin to imagine.
Ultimately, it's not the hardware or software, but the solution that these existing and new technologies bring to the Oil & Gas Industry to improve safety and the efficiency of operations.
