Work Area Setup
Start a Robotic Deployment
Prepare Your Deployment Tools
Built provides everything you need to get started. Access your Field Kit tools in your Deployment UTV or toolbox, and prepare for fully autonomous operation.
Set up the Safety Barrier
Stake out the working area of the robot. Using the poles and impact wrench, create points to run hi-vis tape that will create a safety barrier between the robot and people.
Shoot the Geofence
Follow the path of the safety barrier. Place the GPS recording device where each safety barrier stake has been placed and record a point.
Perform a Safety Check
Inspect the robot and working area. Add the correct safety signage, test the emergency stops, clean cameras, and check the machine and Exosystem for any maintenance needs.
Begin Autonomous Operation
Turn on the Exosystem
Jump into the cab to turn on the Exosystem. Once inside, flick the switch located near the excavator engine start.
Upload Task Details
Open Everest to upload task details. On the Field Kit laptop, upload your geofence, trench layout, and bucket information to set up your work for the day.
Connect to the Robot
See all available machines nearby. Select the robot you would like to use and connect to its onboard computer. Then select your task details and let Everest prepare the work.
Start the Robot
Press “Start” and begin. Once autonomous operation is underway, you can close the laptop and let the robot get to work.
Continue with Your Day
Guardian Monitoring Begins
Built monitors the robot in real-time. The moment the robot begins autonomous operation, Guardian from Built keeps a constant watch over the robot and keeps you informed for ultimate peace of mind as you go about your day.

Built has developed an impressive system that is setting the stage for the future of construction activities. While we are at the early stages of deploying the solution, our pilot project was completed safely and has opened the door to a future of man and machine working side by side.Matthew HadsellPrincipal Engineer, InnovationBlattner Energy
