The aim of Robot Inspector is to develop a semi-automated inspection vehicle for measuring plate thickness and detecting corrosion and cracking in the plate or welds between plates. One of the main target application areas is the inspection of storage tank floors.

The project combines ultrasonic and ACFM inspection tools, all deployed from the one robotic crawler. The partners include companies experienced in software, robotics and positioning systems as well as NDT, from a range of European countries, working in collaboration.
