Disaster relief efforts, for example after earthquakes, lack technological solutions to find and save victims trapped under debris quickly.
In industrial settings, human entry for inspection and maintenance is dangerous, while existing solutions struggle in winding, cluttered, sharp, or slippery environments.
RoBoa overcomes these limitations with its cutting-edge, snake-like robot and goes where no humans or other robots can go!
It employs growing-based locomotion, combined with remarkable maneuverability, sensing its surroundings and the possibility to supply liquids.
RoBoa’s robotic innovation will transform disaster relief missions to save lives and inspect industrial pipes, sewers, and tanks safely.
