Paris Cockinos from Sphere Drones is set to transform workplace safety in Australia with his new robot, named Spot.
According to Nine News, the robot not only fits into dangerous spaces, but its cameras can also zoom in to an object 150 metres away.
“It’s there to really remove staff from unsafe environments and act as a conduit for staff on the ground here on construction sites,” Cockinos told the program.
The robot, which cost $150,000, is the first of its kind in Australia and is set to be tested by Australian emergency services including police and firefighters interstate.
Cockinos’ company also specialises in commercial drones and he counts Rio Tinto, Fortescue Mining and Surf Life Saving Australia as some of his clients.
