Autonomous robots are becoming ever more present in various industries. Robot ‘snakes’ can inspect piping. UAVs can study the outer walls of airships. And now Gecko Robotics has developed wall-climbing robots to monitor industrial storage tanks. The robots can inspect boilers, liquid storage tanks, and piping. They also monitor tank walls using eight ultrasonic sensors. These sensors analyse wall thickness, as wall deterioration can be a major factor in devastating industrial leakage. On-board HD cameras also enable visual inspection of specific sites. A proprietary magnetic system propels each robot up a wall. This system is rapid; robots can scale tanks at…
