Autonomous Robot Drone Solution of RumbleTools

The industrial use of drones is becoming more and more common. For years firms have already been doing high-tech measurement tasks such as thermal imaging, orthography and laser scanning. In addition to these, drones can also be used for a variety of security, fire safety, maintenance and risk management solutions. Drones are especially useful in places that are dangerous for people to work such as high places or close to hazardous materials. They can also be used for simple surveillance and check-up tasks.

There are several advantages of using drone in an industrial environment, which include rapid data collection, visual maintenance inspections, improved occupational safety, reduced production downtime, risk and hazard management, accurate volume measurements as well as cost savings. We at RumbleTools believe that these checks and measurements should be done automatically.

The autonomous robot drone solution of RumbleTools

RumbleTools has developed an Automated Industrial Drone Platform for the diverse needs of industrial sites. The most unique part of our solution is the docking station, which enables that the flying robot drones can operate 24/7 autonomously. Our solution is especially designed to improve the safety and efficiency of industrial sites.

Examples of how RumbleTools Autonomous Robot Drone Solution can be used in a factory site: 

Improving areal security:

Access control and observation of abnormalities through machine vision. The 24/7 operating robot brings a new wide view to the area’s security guards. The real-time aerial data complements the fixed surveillance cameras and patrol.

Emergency response and informing

With drones it is possible to get a better situational view for example during a fire, and thus control better the extinguishing measures. In addition, people can be for example “commanded” to emergency gathering points by attaching loudspeakers to the drone.

Visual maintenance inspections:

Visual maintenance inspections can be carried out safely and cost-efficiently with drones especially in high places such as chimneys, bridges, towers and masts.

Thermal camera inspections:

Detection of heat leakages and roof leakages. Temperature monitoring of material piles, components and exploration of smouldering fires.

Detection of gases and emissions:

Sensors can detect toxic gases or emissions, such as chlorine dioxide or hydrogen sulphide.

Volume measurements of material piles:

Autonomous drone measurements save time and costs while also giving more precise and comparable results. Additionally, these measurements can be performed more often than before (daily or weekly), which allows better material procurement planning.

Collection of statistical data:

The computer inside the docking station collects the desired historical data of the flights. Collected historical data can be used to create models for example of temperature changes in components, which facilitates maintenance planning.
