Remote Visual Inspection Robot

confined spaces PTZ HD camera inspection at height


Visual Inspection is the most performed inspection type in Oil & Gas industry – 80% of all inspection are VT. For documentation and reporting purposes the inspector uses camera and video footage. Today’s cameras make it possible to safely and remotely inspect most hard to reach locations. The camera is typically mounted on a pole to reach the location of interest. Using the FAST RVI, the reach and precision of these inspections are greatly increased.


The FAST RVI allows the operator to access areas that cannot be inspected by humans or the “camera on a pole” approach, with better coverage, including behind baffles and other obstacles.


Eliminate human entry in confined spaces and perform the inspection from a safe & remote location. Avoiding confined space entry is a potential life saving action.

adaptable & modular

The platform can be easily adapted to most PTZ cameras on the market. For our customers this means they can use the equipment they already own.


The system is able to reach the point of interest in the asset from its launching point (typically the manway). This means safe deployment from the entryway, without human entry to confined spaces. The HD inspection camera and accurate 3D Localization inside the asset provide the data needed for thorough assessment.

Deployment Tools

No human entry

The platform with the inspection camera mounted is deployed through the manway of the asset to inspect. The operator navigates the robot to the area of interest and starts the inspection using the powerful HD pan-tilt-zoom camera.

Inspection Camera


The HD30 is an industrial Pan-Zilt-Zoom Camera for inspecting confined spaces. Equipped with powerful light output and tuned to work in dark environments it will provide the inspection results you need to assess the condition of your asset.


Digital Twin of your asset

With 3D LOC the FAST RVI enters the next generation of confined space inspection. Images taken with the HD camera will automatically be tagged to their position on the digital twin.
