Updated: Oct 14, 2021

Ultrasonic corrosion mapping of a steel pipe using Extend Robotics's tele-operated robotic arm. The robotic arm is controlled and manipulated remotely by an operator using VR.


The ultrasonic measurements are done with SONUS, the smallest, lightest EMAT acquisition system custom-designed for robotic applications, by Sonobotics


Today, the inspection industry is confronting a number of important challenges where human protection, safety and operation downtime are more than ever the centre of concerns.
