Copperstone Technologies Develop Robot for Tracking Across Tailings Dams
The HELIX family of robots is named for its unique mobility – they carry heavy payloads across tailings ponds, in conditions that can be wet, muddy, snowy, and often sticky (sometimes all on the same day). No technology could handle all of the required situations: boats could not handle shallow water or thickened tailings, aerial vehicles couldn’t carry the required payloads, and tracked or wheeled robots sank in the tailings.  Inspired by designs of the past, Copperstone have modernized the screw-drive concept and developed HELIX, a patented combination of screw-propulsion and four-wheel drive capable of remote and autonomous operations.
