Robot system for remote gas detection in technical facilities

28 March, 2014

Detection of gas leaks in industrial facilities can not only be dangerous and time-consuming, it is also susceptible to human error and interpretation. In order to provide a safer, more efficient and more reliable detection solution, RoboGasInspector was conceived. The innovative robot system for remote detection and localisation of gas leaks was developed by a range of German companies and institutes, and uses a FLIR GF320 optical gas imaging camera.
