The European Robotics Forum 2018 is the most influential meeting of the robotics community in Europe and takes place in Tampere – Finland this year.
Over 900 leading scientists, companies and decision-makers come together for the largest robotics event in Europe.
taurob attends this event too and welcomes interested people from all over the world at booth 2A3 in Tampere Hall.
After winning the ARGOS Challenge, we were invited by Total to present the successful project at one of the most important and largest exhibitions in the oil and gas industry – the ADIPEC in Abu Dhabi. Two autonomously operating robots were sent on inspection rounds on an oil platform, which was specifically replicated for the exhibition. This layout created a lot of attention among visitors. Members of Total’s Board of Directors as well as other key players from the industry visited the booth. Together with senior local government representatives, they could see the technology of the future.
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.
