We have developed a novel approach to confined space robot localization. The technology provides full 3D spatial awareness of the robot in the asset and a 3D interactive robot control. Inspection data is automatically tagged with the precise position in the asset, and a digital twin containing all the inspection data is maintained. Inspection reports are generated automatically, and the data can be uploaded into asset performance management systems.
The system is able to localize itself and automatically links the captured image with the correct asset-coordinates. In normal sized pressure vessels and tanks the accuracy and repeat-ability is ±25mm (±1″).
The technology provides full 3D spatial awareness of the robot in the asset and a 3D interactive robot control. For the operator this means precise and easy to use navigation capabilities.
Inspection data such as Images, UT thickness measurements, Eddy Current Data etc. captured with a 3D LOC equipped robot are tagged with the position in the asset and integrated with the 3D Digital Twin.
All the tools you need to plan, simulate and execute your inspection.
Step 1: Asset generation
create a 3D model of your asset
The Asset Builder Software package is a powerful tool to quickly create 3D models without the need of using design Software.
Step 2: Simulation
inspection plan before deploying the robot
Use our simulation software to create your flight plan through the asset in a virtual environment.
Step 3: Inspection
robot deployment & reporting
closing the circle from asset generation throughinspection planning to the actual inspection and final report.
