Mobile Vehicle

The core of our solution is a highly mobile vehicle, engineered to navigate the challenging environment of the Sydney Harbour Bridge. This robotic vehicle is equipped with advanced mobility features allowing it to maneuver across complex surfaces with ease, ensuring comprehensive coverage and consistent maintenance performance.

Precision Alignment of Tool Head and Tools Using Linear Ball Screw Platforms

Precision is paramount in maintenance robotics. Our system utilizes linear ball screw platforms for the precise alignment of tool heads and tools. This feature ensures that every operation, from rivet removal to bolt installation, is executed with millimeter accuracy, significantly reducing the risk of errors and enhancing overall maintenance quality.

Compact Design for Confined Spaces

Designed to operate within the restrictive confines of the bridge's internal structure, our robot features a compact design that does not sacrifice power or functionality. This allows it to access and repair hard-to-reach areas that are typically beyond the scope of human workers, ensuring thorough maintenance without compromising on safety.

Multipurpose Tool Changing Head

Our robot is equipped with a multipurpose tool-changing head, enhancing its versatility and effectiveness. This innovative head includes:

    Bolt Holder: Securely holds bolts during installation, ensuring precision and stability.
    Rivet Capture Device: Efficiently captures and removes old rivets, maintaining cleanliness and order during operations.
    Magnetometer for Rivet Identification: Quickly identifies and assesses rivets, speeding up the maintenance process and reducing downtime.
    Laser Pointer for Easy Positioning: Assists in the accurate placement of the robot, enhancing the precision of repairs.
    Pan and Tilt Camera: Provides real-time feedback to operators, ensuring all tasks are performed accurately and to the highest standards.
