HUVRdata and Ghost Robotics have announced that it recently conducted six live sessions to demonstrate how combining quadruped robot inspection with inspection data management software (IMDS) can deliver operational excellence and greater safety for enterprises. The demonstrations took place at Quasset’s Test Facility in Houston, Texas.
Ghost said operationalizing and scaling ground robotics includes best-in-class hardware, data management software, and service. The Ghost VISION 60 quadruped robot can work in all weather conditions and gather multiple types of inspection data. Once collected, the HUVRdata IDMS platform ingests, standardizes and analyzes the data. This ensures that everyone at the site or company is working off the same information.
“HUVR builds best-in-class IDMS software and Ghost created a best-in-class inspection robotic tool,” said Chris Haines, vice president of business development and strategy at HUVR. “Together, we stand ready to support our clients with implementation and speed-to-value. We have extensive experience enabling the scale of aerial robotics with our enterprise clients and we see a similar trajectory and opportunity for the scale of ground robotics.”
The goals for companies in operationalizing inspection technologies, whether it’s a VISION 60, drone, handheld device or subsea ROV – are safety and productivity, HUVR said. The company’s IDMS ensures the data received by stakeholders is comprehensive and standardize, which allows for a like-to-like comparison across both assets and time, which leads to better insights to decrease waste and increase process, it added.
“Being able to use various sensors on our robot and pulling that data back into HUVR will seamlessly augment the work of human inspectors, enabling new levels of scale within the largest energy producers and petrochemical companies,” said Michael Subhan, CEO of Ghost Robotics.
