Autonomous Infrastructure Inspection via Vortex Robots

29 Nov. 2021, 09:00 - 12:00
Luleå , Vetenskapens hus
Published: 17 November 2021

A workshop on the applications of Vortex robots for autonomous industrial infrastructure inspection.

The project aims aims to investigate the commercialization and TRL advancement of the
Vortex Robot (VR) technology developed in Η2020 FETOPEN CompInnova, which will
increase the inspection efficiency in terms of lower execution times, lower operational
costs and higher worker safety. VORTEX will focus on the creation of its brand name and
expand the dissemination/communication activities implemented in CompInnova to
focused industrial events and wider media/press channels, for maximizing societal and
market acceptance of autonomous multi-robot systems tackling inspection and
maintenance tasks.

The workshop is arranged by the research group in Robotics and AI.
