Tunnel inspector: More CoMET robotics

from Wired

Robinspect, a tunnel-inspecting robot, is slated for pilot testing at the end of 2014, in London Underground tunnels, underground portions of Greece's Egnatia Highway, and some test tunnels in Switzerland. Developed by a collaboration of European infrastructure engineers, the robot sits at the end of a truck-mounted crane and searches for cracks, gaps, and fissures, allowing crews to use it for drive-through inspections, making it unnecessary to shut tunnels down. Time savings are not the only benefit, its proponents say, noting that robot eyes see everything as opposed to human eyes that don't. Robinspect should be able to analyze surface defects, measure defects and the distance between cracks, and detect open joints. more
