Robotics systems for hazardous environments
Robotics are one of the areas  that can help in hazardous environments. They have the potential to either remove the human operator completely or to reduce risk in carrying out work. In space, mining, oil & gas, defense, first responders or nuclear many technologies are transferable and lessons leaned from each other.
Space. KREX-2 designed for drilling into the surface of Mars.
The Ideas Catalog currently has 1,560 robotic systems that can be searched by industry to see if someone has already developed something that might be applicable for your own challenge. The "Experience" tab is updated with use cases and operational experience to provide a rich knowledge base that is continuously growing.
