THE INSPECTOR ROBOT

The world´s toughest data gathering robot.

Robotized inspection and maintenance.

With the power of precision sensors, the Inspector excels in data collection with unparalleled versatility and objectivity, often surpassing human operators. It captures ultra-high-definition photos and videos, records sounds, identifies gas leaks through thermography, and surveys its surroundings with a 3D LIDAR scanner.

4 hour mission runtime

Natural born ATEX

Available within one month

Ground robots are now a reality in the energy industry.

Ground robots are already a reality in the energy sector. They can navigate difficult terrain, operate in hazardous environments, collect data and lower emissions of operations. With advances in technology, the use of ground robots is expected to increase in the coming years.

Industry best practice hazard and risk analysis performed with clients and certification bodies.

Taurob’s flexible API connects directly to a client’s digital twin or seamlessly integrates 3rd party software.

Thanks to its four joint long arm, the robot possesses a unique advantage – being able to inspect Points Of Interests that were designed for a human perspective.

The Inspector performs missions of up to 2,5 uninterrupted hours and recharges in only 80 minutes to its full capacity.

The Inspector climbs and descends stairs of up to 45° inclination in order to perform missions on multiple levels.

We are committed to designing, developing and long-term testing in order to achieve maximum availability in the field.

The robot is intrinsically safe and fulfils requirements to function in the harshest environments.
