Drone Autonomy, LiDAR Mapping and Data Analytics

Brisbane-based company Emesent was founded in October 2018, and has since become a trailblazer in the underground mining industry. With 154 employees, the company offers a range of innovative products that utilise artificial intelligence and machine learning (AIML) to help navigate unmanned systems, using simultaneous localization and mapping (SLAM) and identifying specific shapes for automation. Emesent’s unique offering in the industry is a combination of 3D scanning with autonomy. This allows for more accurate and precise data collection, particularly in hazardous and challenging environments. Emesent’s products and services have already impacted the underground mining industry, with over 400 systems in use globally, revolutionizing workflows across a number of countries. Global Head of Defence & Security, Dean Dickson says the company is combining advanced robotics, machine learning, and AI to build autonomous systems that will radically improve operational safety and efficiency. 
“The future development of a fully automated ecosystem delivering data analytics to a single operator via a 4D visualisation platform will be instrumental in increasing efficiencies and ensuring people are removed from hazardous environments”. 
Emesent’s focus on AIML will play a crucial role in the future of automation. The technology is expected to deliver more insightful data, providing greater value to customers. The company’s growth from seven employees in late 2018 to 154 in 2022, with the release of five new product offerings in 2022, is a testament to the potential of the technology. 
Emesent’s success lies in its ability to leverage AIML and its unique combination of 3D scanning and autonomy to develop cutting-edge products and services. The company’s focus on automation will undoubtedly have a significant impact on the industry, as more businesses recognize the benefits of utilizing AIML for their operations. Emesent is leading the way in this space, and it will be interesting to see how the company continues to innovate in the coming years.
