SIMAR PROPOSES A NEW TYPE OF INSPECTION ROBOT

ABOUT THE PROJECT

SIMAR proposes a new type of inspection robot that is composed of an aerial system with advanced navigation capabilities that will allow to safely land on pipes, even if they are located in complex and cluttered locations and deploy untethered and light-weight crawlers to perform complete inspections of insulated pipes.

SIMAR CONCEPT

MOVE, SUPPORT & UNDERSTAND

Materials degrade in Oil&Gas facilities due to exposure to product, environment, and mechanical demand. In order to avoid releases, leaks, or catastrophic component failures, it is critical to assess the condition of the systems.

The main purpose of SIMAR resides on keeping the human workers of dangerous industrial plants in a location, where inspection and maintenance activities can be performed in a safe and healthy way. This will be done by applying the MOVE, SUPPORT and UNDERSTAND functionalities, integrated into a unique system, validated in a controlled environment, and finally demonstrated in areal operational industrial facility of the SIMAR end-users. humans to perform inspection and maintenance in the best conditions .

MOVE

will be implemented by robots with flying and crawling locomotion.

UNDERSTAND

by means of Artificial Intelligence.

SUPPORT

by the application of Augmented Reality.
