Airobot has teamed up with Avular and SPIE in the Smart Tooling project to develop a smart drone based solution to facilitate the inspection of chemical process plants. Airobot will contribute it’s collision avoidance and positioning technology to make the data collections safer and georeference the data. We will also develop a software tool to plan the inspection flights, calculate the optimal flight path and provide the data from the flight in an organized way to the inspection specialist.

In the Redox CrossRoads2 project Airobot works together with Avular to create an indoor drone inspection for corrosion. Airobot will develop innovative hyperspectral technology to detect abnormalities. With this detected information, an Artificial Intelligence Engine will classify the abnormalities while Avular will focus on the development of indoor navigation technology based on beacons. This process should work seamlessly and needs a drone that can fulfill these inspections completely autonomously on a safe and reliable way. The project starts in 2019 and is expected to finish mid-2020.
