Course Credit: 0.15 CEU, 1.5 PDH

Since 2007, Robotic Drilling Systems AS (RDS) has developed robotic technology for an unmanned drill floor. This has included the development of a new generation of pipe handlers, iron roughnecks, elevators, slips, control systems and man-machine interfaces, and a new machine: the drill floor robot. The drill floor robot will perform the manual tasks carried out on the drill floor today. RDS presented a full-scale prototype of the robotic drill floor in 2010, and ran numerous tests through 2012.

In 2013 RDS presented an industrial version of the drill floor robot, and are now designing and building an industrial version of the robotic drill floor. All machines are fully electrical robots with autonomous capabilities. RDS will present the results and status of its research and development program, and discuss how the robotic drill floor will be introduced in the industry.
