Final Report - SAFERDRILL (A remotely controlled autonomous walking and climbing robot for faster and safer landslide monitoring, slope stability analysis and consolidation)

Project ID: 16842
Funded under: FP6-SME

Abstract

This is the final report of the SAFERDRILL project. The aim of the project was to develop a structure capable of carrying an automatic drilling unit for performing deep drilling and slope stability analysis, thereby reducing operating costs and working time, while avoiding a human presence in unsafe and harsh environment.

The report outlines the development of a robust climbing mechanical structure capable of moving vertically and horizontal. It also describes a drilling unit, navigation system, an innovative rope tensioning system, and a geophysical knowledge based system that provides information on slope morphology by integrating in real time drilling values and properties of ground samples.
