Construction is an industry that has one of the highest risks, and maintenance work can be disruptive and dangerous for humans. That's why we are seeing robotics solutions such as these tiny robots that help with underfloor repairs. Now, a small robot from Lockheed Martin is keeping next-generation airships safe. The flexible outer housing of airships need routine inspections, as even small pinhole perforations can have a detrimental effect on flight. Previously, these are carried out by human engineers on deflated airships. To make the process safer and more efficient, Lockheed Martin has developed a UAV that autonomously covers the…
