Robotic technologies in service of vessel inspections

Stand number: 18


The MINOAS project proposes an innovative system concept for vessel inspections, assembling a fleet of robots and a set of tools aiding the surveyor in inspection tasks. The system includes several robot typologies, each with specific motion and task capabilities. For instance, there is a quadrotor helicopter dedicated to the overall visual survey, a light crawler for close-up surveys and a heavy crawler for thickness measurements. Tools include image processing algorithms for detecting defects. Some robots will be live exhibited at our stand; videos will support the presentation of the system.
