Smart Drilling Robot

Holes in the ground are easy to drill, but if this hole has to have a certain length, width, depth and slope, things start to get tangled.
To carry out these works, engineers at the British University of Lancaster have designed the miniaturized prototype of a robot. The holes made by this robot depend on the data it has accumulated in its "brain". All tests carried out to date have been positive and public works companies are awaiting the commercialization of the prototype.
It must be borne in mind that the excavations badly carried out in public works mean a significant loss of money and time, and unfortunately this is very frequent.
