AI in infrastructure inspection and applications

28 apr. 2021, 08:00 - 09:00
Publicerad: 10 mars 2021

All dangerous works and services in harsh environments will be fully automated in the future. This will lead to higher efficiency, reduce costs and minimized risks for personnel.

Autonomous drones are creating multiple opportunities for almost all the key industrial sectors in multiple missions focusing from e.g. inspection of mines, wind turbines, into all the forms of the ageing infrastructure. Autonomous robots in multiple forms will be utilized massively for everything from security and surveillance to missions in space.  

In this webinar, the unlimited opportunities of utilizing autonomous robots for multiple inspection applications will be presented. The enabling technologies on autonomy will also be presented and fused with the current state of the art in computer vision, localisation, orchestration of multiple robots and specific applications with a related high impact.


8.00 - 8.05 Introduction
Michael Nilsson, Applied AI DIH North project manager, Luleå University of Technology

8.05 – 8.15 A real life example
Peter Burman, Program Manager Mine Automation, Boliden

8.15 – 8.45  Autonomous robots for inspection: applications, opportunities & state of the art
George Nikolakopoulos, Professor and Head of Subject, Robotics and Artificial Intelligence, Luleå University of Technology 

8.45 – 8.55   Q&A session

About George Nikolakopoulos
George is acting Chair on Robotics and AI, a Professor on Robotics and Automation at the Department of Computer Science, Electrical and Space Engineering at Luleå University of Technology. His work is focusing in the area of Robotics, Control Applications and Cyberphysical Systems. His published scientific work includes more than 150 published International Journals and Conferences in the field. He has been Associate Editor and Reviewer of Several International Journals and Conferences, as well as a member of the ARTEMIS scientific Council in the European Commission. 

The Award-winning Robotics team
The research group in Robotics and AI at Luleå University of Technology are working to demonstrate the utilization of robots in real life conditions and fully connected with real needs. It is world class when it comes to Robotics and specifically drone technology. As part of NASA’s team in the Subterranean Challenge, they successfully came in second place in the world in the first circuit of the prestigious competition. The challenge was to map, identify, and report artefacts in a mine by utilizing autonomous systems and the teams brought both UAV’s and ground robots to the spot.  

This webinar is arranged by Applied AI DIH North
The project Applied AI DIH North aims to create a strong innovation system for growth in the AI industry, a Digital Innovation Hub as a base, in collaboration, research, innovation, applied test-driven development, education and clustering. The project is funded by the EU's regional development fund, Luleå University of Technology, Luleå municipality, Skellefteå municipality and Region Norrbotten.
