Voliro promotes the concept of drones being capable of flying in all orientations.

With this unique capability, Voliro platforms can adapt to the orientation of 3D-structures and interact with it. This allows conducting physical interaction with the environment in a safe and reliable manner.

Inspection and Monitoring

Continuous operation of assets require constant inspection and monitoring. Drones proved great success in visual inspection of assets in gas & oil industry and civil engineering. However, inspection often require placement of sensors in contact with the structure to gather more information about material thickness and the internal structure integrity.

There is a large and growing demand for Non-Destructive Testing (NDT). This is currently performed by rope access teams or by building scaffoldings. Voliro offers a system that can perform both visual and contact-based inspection in one run. Reducing greatly the time and costs needed for inspection tasks.

Painting and Coating

Voliro platforms are able to fly in vicinity to 3D-structure and follow arbitrary paths. This allows for precise paint spraying and anti-corrosion coating of large and complex structures.
