With over two decades of experience developing systems for space and planetary exploration, Honeybee Robotics knows how to create reliable, effective solutions that operate in challenging environments.
Our development process starts with the end user’s goals and finishes with high-performance robotic inspection and maintenance platforms optimized for size, weight, and power.
Companies operating extensive upstream and downstream infrastructure know all too well the challenges of remote inspection and interventions. Honeybee combines experience creating manipulation technologies, novel mobility platforms, and perception-based control algorithms to design and build new robotic systems for pipe inspection, downhole logging, confined entry inspection, and remote repair.
We strive to be the ideal development partner from early-stage design consulting through support in field deployment.
Advanced Robotics for Upstream and Downstream Applications
Robotic systems, deploying a range of trusted and validated non-destructive testing (NDT) sensors, can gather data more reliably and repeatably than manual methods. Localization of the data across scans helps correlate results from different NDT sensors to gain a more complete view of your assets.
Without the need to construct extensive scaffolds or rely on costly deployment methods, robotic systems enable asset owners to gather data more frequently. This contributes to insights, such as change detection over time, that improve corrosion models and enable more cost-effective preventative maintenance.
Reduce human exposure to heights, confined spaces, and other dangerous environments by deploying robotic systems to perform the necessary tasks. Whether the systems is teleoperated, semi- or fully-autonomous, technicians can teleoperate from a safe location while staying in control of the remote operations.
