This episode features an interview with Craig Milne, CEO of Alberta-based Copperstone Technologies, which makes autonomous amphibious vehicles that take measurements in hazardous tailings ponds. 

The company's electrically powered AR2 and Neptune robots are propelled by screw-shaped pontoons capable of traversing tailings ponds' diverse and difficult terrain.
