Software Solution from Energy Robotics Enables Spot Robot from Boston Dynamics to Conduct Remote, Autonomous Inspection Missions at Facilities of Merck, a Leading Science and Technology Company
Darmstadt, September 09, 2020 – Energy Robotics, a leading developer of software solutions for mobile robots used in industrial applications, today announced that its remote sensing and inspection solution for Boston Dynamics’s agile mobile robot Spot was successfully deployed at Merck’s thermal exhaust treatment plant at its headquarters in Darmstadt, Germany. Energy Robotics equipped Spot with sensor technology and remote supervision functions to support the inspection mission.
Thermal exhaust treatment facilities play an important role in environmental protection. They contain a number of maintenance intensive components that must be monitored frequently. Sensors typically held by a human doing routine inspection are used to detect anomalies in equipment such as pumps or fans, as well as inspect pressure and fluid levels in tanks. Energy
