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.
