Energid’s Actin Software Revolutionizes Oil and Gas Exploration

25/04/2014 by


Energid Technologies announced today a new phase of development with Norway’s Robotic Drilling Systems AS (RDS), which secured significant follow-on investment from oil industry partners last week.  Energid will continue to tailor its premier robotics software, Actin, to meet the needs of oil and gas drillers worldwide, with beta deployments anticipated next year.

RDS has embraced the world’s most advanced robot control software, used by NASA and DARPA, to automate the complex task of oil and gas drilling.  The Actin software will program, monitor, and control the novel robots RDS is developing and applying to offshore drilling operations.

Energid’s software provides a level of autonomy, flexibility, and safety not before seen in the energy industry.  It will simplify the interface to the end-user, whether a rig operator (simply monitoring rig operations) or a developer (with the ability to create complex motion sequences for the robots).  Complex multi-robot tasks will be built up from smaller human-understandable tasks.
