The report “Focus on Remote Operations” is presented by SPRINT Robotics’ Action Group Remote Operator (AGRO). This strategic blueprint has been published to further assist members with remote operator robotic applications, leveraging experiences and capturing specific considerations from companies who have already started implementing some level of remote operations. Additionally, this updated version specifies subject areas in which AGRO should focus on for future development.
Since inception in 2016, AGRO has been actively working towards developing a standard definition and general understanding of what end users and operators generally perceive as and expect of a remote operator.
The first AGRO focus report was published in 2018. The updated version of this report is the result of several exercises performed by AGRO to collect required input from the industry during 2017, 2018 and 2019. In total 35 different companies contributed to this focus report by means of questionnaires and interviews.
