Gecko Robotics is the company behind the creation of industrial inspection robots to aid in the assessment of manufacturing machinery such as tanks, boilers, scrubbers, and piping over time.

Gecko Robotics: Wall climbing robot for Industrial Inspections

By introducing robots for the inspection, multiple inspection processes can be executed in parallel. This speeds up the overall inspection process, which today often is performed on a section-by-section basis through a single inspector.

Decommissioning happens around us all the time, old buildings get torn down, coal power plants shutdown and vehicles get scrapped.

Robotics for Harsh Environments - Nuclear Decommissioning

Robots can drive on the plains and craters of Mars, but what if we could explore cliffs, polar caps and other hard-to-reach places on the Red Planet and beyond?

For Climbing Robots, the Sky's the Limit

Created by the Biorobotics Lab at Carnegie Mellon University, this robot has many internal degrees of freedom which make it possible for the robot to thread through tightly packed volumes, and narrow spaces.

Snakebot: Highly articulated versatile snake robot

A soft and flexible leech-shaped robot that can climb vertical walls has been developed as part of a collaborative research project.
