Last week taurob, together with research partner TU Darmstadt, was announced as the winner of the ARGOS Challenge, powered by Oil & Gas giant Total S.A.
In a three-year competition, five international teams competed to develop a robot for routine-, inspection- and emergency operations on oil & gas sites. Frequently, gas leaks on oil drilling rigs, can cause an increased risk to safety and the environment.
The ARGOS Challenge finals took place between March 13th and 17th in France. Five different robots were tested by Oil and Gas company TOTAL S.A. in complex autonomous missions. The “Argonaut” robot from taurob and TU Darmstadt could successfully finish all missions and impressed through its robustness and full ATEX certification. The winner of the ARGOS challenge will be announced by TOTAL in May, until then we would like to ask you: Keep your fingers crossed!
From January 22 – 24, 2017 we were participating at Intersec 2017 in Dubai together with our partner Interlink Petroleum Services. This exhibition was the perfect opportunity to present our next generation mobile robot for the very first time. The “taurob tracker 2” combines cutting edge industrial design with greatly improved functionality.
We would like to thank all our visitors for their great interest.
