Robotics and Intelligent Assets – NASA and Woodside Collaboration

November 19, 2019 @ 4:30 pm - 6:30 pm


Woodside is applying technologies to provide better than human awareness, enabling our people to work more efficiently while reducing exposure to health and safety risks in the oil and gas environment.

Woodside is currently deploying wireless Industrial Internet of Things (IIOT) and robotic technologies that stream data relating to condition monitoring and operator surveillance directly from our facilities to our analytics platform. Our growing data science team then works to transform the raw data into insights for action. Along with our research collaborators (e.g. NASA, University of Texas, CSIRO and Boeing), Woodside is pioneering autonomous and teleoperated robotic manipulation of equipment.

Woodside looks forward to sharing our learnings, experiences, successes and challenges in deploying advanced technologies such as IIOT, Robotics and Data Science.
