Remote Presence - TRL5
A remotely controlled robot intended to be installed on a rail inside wind turbine nacelles is developed and tested in lab scale by NTNU PhD student.
The Remote Inspection technology enables low cost remote inspection of offshore turbines and can reduce the need for manned inspections, turbine downtime and cost for O&M.
Norsk Automatisering AS (NAAS) develops Remote Inspection as a new product and service.
Further development, including real life testing is planned by NAAS as part of the NOWITECH spin-off project LEANWIND (EU FP7, 2013-2017), and through a User-driven Research based Innovation (Brukerstyrt innovasjonsarena - BIA) with NAAS as project leader, 6 other project participants, including 1 PhD and 1 Postdoc at NTNU.
