LR has an active research programme for robotics and unmanned systems, encompassing technology, design codes, policies and guidelines on safe and sustainable deployment. We see UAS as part of the unmanned systems and robotics story, which also includes underwater and ground-based systems.
There is no doubt that these technologies will continue to innovate in the Marine, Offshore and Energy industry – and across the value chain, companies are considering how best to leverage the opportunities.
LR can support clients through this step change. We can help provide a consistent approach to risk management, technology qualification, commercial advisory on robotics deployment and its application across legislative regimes, asset conditions and work cultures which can be a complex process.
This is a crisp, no-nonsense introduction to Lloyd’s Register. For background and context, please see the excellent companion piece in sUAS News.
