Tethered inspection robot project
Hades-6 : Storm water Drain Inspection Robot
In 2020 we were contacted by Frontline safety to make them a single robot that could work with a tether cable to inspect storm water drains and also work wirelessly to inspect crawlspaces that were hard to reach compromising the health and safety of the staff.
Techmatics designed and built the system custom system that would meet their requirements at meeting the the clients budget and quality expectations.
The custom removable wheels meant that the robot could inspect underfloor spaces, storm drains, culverts, under vehicles and other potential crawl space inspections.
“In late 2020 we enlisted the help of Techmatics NZ with building a custom robot with multiple capabilities for our inspection requirements. Ravi was fantastic to communicate with and kept us up-to-date with progress all the way through the build. It was a new robot for Techmatics but was met as an exciting challenge. The outcome far exceeded our expectations and Ravi and the team have provided and continue to provide exceptional support and guidance as we explore the capabilities of the robot. The robot is capable of both commercial, residential, Wi-Fi and tethered inspections, stormwater pipe inspections, culverts, both in thermal & RGB images, the list goes on, a truly versatile robot. The customisation work that was put into the robot is simply outstanding. We look forward to exploring other opportunities in the future as we expand and look at adding to our robotic fleet. It is a great addition to our aerial and underwater drone assets”
