Presentation Title : Removing the Human Interface in Tanker Top Loading

Presentation Time: Wednesday May 1st – 14.30 – 14.45 – Stage 1

Abstract : Preventing falls from height, exposure to harmful substances, minimizing damage to tankers and resources, providing definable payback on capital within a short time. Who doesn’t want that? The rise of the robot means that this is available and achievable for a lot less money than most imagine. This paper discusses the growing desire to improve operator safety and environmental compliance through the use of automated loading arms that are completely autonomous and customization. cars are entirely built using robots. So why are we not dispensing 25,000 liters into tankers the same way?
