Discover how RocketDNA deployed and tested its Surveybot to an actual customer site, helping to automate their on-site survey workflows.

Automated Stockpile Reporting

Equipped with high-resolution cameras, LiDAR sensors, and cloud-based AI software, our SurveyBot can autonomously survey stockpiles, collecting accurate and up-to-date data on inventory levels, stockpile conditions, and material composition. This eliminates the need for manual measurements and reduces human error, saving time and improving accuracy.

Automated Open-Pit Safety & Conformance Reporting

Autonomously navigate open-pit mining sites, providing real-time monitoring of hazardous areas, detecting potential risks such as unstable slopes, haul road widths, windrows heights or identifying non-compliance issues.

Construction & Progress Monitoring

Automated Progress Monitoring that reduces Rework and Timeline Risk, by providing a single source of frequent data through the entire lifecycle of the project build. SurveyBot empowers project managers by automating the monitoring, data analysis and reporting process.
