States that the Atlas navigation system is the fruit of four years’ work by a UK Robotics development team which, in conjunction with European partners, has been working on an ESPRIT funded programme to develop a fully automated road surfacing robot. Describes the project, which is now complete, with the ESPRIT evaluators awarding UK Robotics a commendation for the best contribution to the project. Concludes that there is no reason why Atlas’s technology should be confined to the building industry. Stations, car parks, nuclear installations, airports, mines and hospitals all currently employ mobile robots in some capacity, so might all benefit from Atlas.
