The Ross Robotics Scale 2.0 robot platform has been driven over the test lanes at the Culham RACE test facility near Oxford, UK. The test procedure characterizes reliability, speed over obstacles, trajectory control etc. using test lanes that have defined parameters.
Culham RACE is currently developing standardized testing procedures for robots, initially basing the methodology on the standardized test (NIST) procedures developed in the US. Ross Robotics is supporting this initiative and will be present at a Culham RACE Industry Day on November 8th.
Ross Robotics has been working with Chinese plastics manufacturer RPWORLD who have recently published a case study ‘From Concept to Reality’ documenting the development of the EXTRM SC2.0 robot platform.

Ross Robotics is working in collaboration with the UK’s National Physical Laboratory, based in Teddington, West London, and assisted by an InnovateUK funded Programme, to develop autonomous survey and inspection solutions for the oil & gas industry.
A Ross Robotics Scale 2.0 robot platform was shown at NPL’s Open Day, showcasing the forthcoming integration of NPL’s Difcam system, already used by Network Rail, with the robot. The Difcam system will be modularized by using the Ross Robotics connector technology.
The autonomous robotic survey system is initially being developed for the inspection and non-destructive testing of oil & gas pressure vessels with further scope for application in the nuclear industry.
