Robotics for Inspection and Maintenance Forum

ASME, September 24, 2019


Maintaining aging infrastructure in energy, oil and gas and transportation is dangerous, challenging, slow and costly. Optimizing inspection, maintenance and repair is key to efficient, safe and profitable operations. Hazardous environments affect health and safety, accessibility, cost, time, and accuracy. Manual data collection can take weeks.

ASME’s Robotics for Inspection and Maintenance Forum leverages hands-on demonstrations, case studies and industry expertise, so you can:

  • Hear how industry leaders are implementing robotics technologies for increased speed, improved accuracy, safer operations and cost savings.
  • Learn about the latest technologies from leading suppliers and see cutting-edge technologies in action on live vessels, platforms and demonstration areas.
  • Gain expertise in best practices for applications, leveraging data and analytics and gaining trust in predictive maintenance.


Advanced robots, communication, vision, and simulation provide intelligence and dexterity for performing tasks autonomously in complex environments. Robotics paired with artificial intelligence and advanced analytics will take inspection and predictive maintenance to the next level. 

Autonomous and semi-autonomous vehicles including robots, drones, and crawlers armed with cameras and sensors collect data quickly and accurately. Access areas unreachable by humans, inspect larger areas, see past obstacles. Robotic technology keeps people safe and enhances results. Mobile, lightweight and agile-robots can climb tall structures, fly over aerial features and deploy in tight spaces or complex surface to deliver reliable, repeatable data.
