Researcher Alfredo Martins from INESC TEC – Institute for Systems and Computer Engineering, Technology and Science, talked about the UX-1Neo robot in Porto Canal.
In the interview, which was recorded for the program “Mentes que Brilham”, Alfredo Martins explained that the robot was developed within the scope of the European UNEXUP Project, improving the technology already acquired throughout the UNEXMIN project. It also allows the increasing performance in terms of range and depth, acquisition, management and data processing. The UX-1Neo was tested at Urgeiriça Mine (Nelas, Viseu), through a collaboration with EDM, before being tested in Hungary and Ukraine.
