A robotic answer to safe, automated industrial maintenance

A robotic answer to safe, automated industrial maintenance
Description

Maintenance and repair work in the aeronautics and construction industries can be both time-consuming and dangerous, which is why an EU project developed robots that were a cost-effective way to get the job done without exposing workers to potential harm.

Results

CableBOT developped a new-generation robotic system made up of a network of cables and computer-controlled winches capable of performing different maintenance steps during the life-cycles of large-scale structures.
