SPRINT Robotics has initiated a number of publications, ranging from guidelines and reports to the highly successful SPRINT Robotics Roadmap, used by a wide range of audiences and unique to the I&M Robotics field.  Many of the publications were initiated by the Action Groups within SPRINT Robotics, specifically addressing the inspection and maintenance of different assets.

SPRINT Robotics publications promote uniformity in operational procedures, help identify technology improvements that will progress the practical use of technology, align the industry on goals and priorities, enable innovators and researchers to structurally contribute to solutions, inform policymakers about the changing landscape, and assist end users to adapt their (operational) procedures for the uptake of new technologies.

SPRINT Robotics participating companies can download all of the publications for free on SR Community.
