AUSMOS: Automated Utility Service Mark-Out System
AUSMOS: Developing the Future of Underground Mapping
AUSMOS is a semi-autonomous prototype robotic platform that will detect and mark-out below-ground infrastructure utilizing a sensor suite comprised of ground penetrating radar and electromagnetic sensors. This robotic platform will automate underground mapping enabling denser GPR data collection and more powerful post-processing techniques that results in easier to interpret data, reducing the risk of accidental damage to buried assets.
Ease of Setup
AUSMOS removes manual, intensive setup required for grid marking prior to data acquisition to reduce time-in-street and increase project efficiency.
Improved Data Acquisition
The pushcart data acquisition process is prone to human error. Deployment of AUSMOS ensures data is properly captured and results in a more detailed scan.
On-Site Data Processing
AUSMOS is designed to deliver immediate, interpretable results in the field and removes the need to wait for data analysis by subject matter experts.
Robust & Interpretable Data
Semi-Autonomous GRP scans are able to deliver higher density C-Scans or point clouds to overcome challenging locates.
3D Migration Post-Processing
3D Migration postprocessing captures differences between ‘as-built’ and ‘as-designed’ network infrastructure more effectively than traditional techniques, yielding improved damage prevention.
Simultaneous Data Capture
The AUSMOS robot collects GPR and EM data simultaneously to reduce the impact to traffic by providing all relevant data in a single scan.
