Fields of competence
ROBOTNOR represents a unique synergy of academic and industrial expertise which allows us to counsel and comprehend a wide variety of tasks and projects. Our fields of competence are numerous and diverse.
SINTEF ICT has cooperated with the Norwegian oil & gas company Statoil since 2005 on offshore robotics for remote inspection and maintenance of process equipment. A lab facility has been built in Trondheim, Norway, in cooperation with NTNU in order to demonstrate concept solutions for such operations.
We have developed solutions which can be used as a basis for fully operational offshore robotics systems. Moreover, several challenges have been identified and systemized. These need to met before a successful deployment of such systems can be made possible.
The technology developed include tooling for robot intervention, 3D model-based approaches to remote control of operations, autonomous object localization and intervention, online teleoperation, and collision control.
