The agile MaggHD™ was recently spotted behind the camera lens for a commercial produced by one of the world’s leading integrated oil and gas companies, BP. In a series that promotes safety, BP created this clip showing how their enterprise employs drones and robots for inspection on their Thunder Horse platform.
The system shown features the new low profile chassis on the OnSite standard MaggHD™ miniature magnetic crawler; its high definition tilting camera head has been moved from the top of the vehicle platform to the front to allow navigation underneath obstacles, and a closer view of the offshore production riser surface. Take a closer look here.
The short clip also squeezes in a look at Inuktun personnel operating ICON, Inuktun’s proprietary PC-based control software. The same control system used to operate the MaggHD™ here can be used to operate a wide range of Inuktun’s Multi-Mission Modular (IM3™) technology. The simple sophistication of ICON allows operators to spend their time performing structural integrity assessments rather than taking up time trying to navigate multiple controllers and cumbersome stations; learn more here.
Whether popping up in commercials, crawling out of penstocks, scaling wind turbines or simply taking a coffee break at the office, #InuktunInTheWild sightings are happening worldwide, and we want to see yours! Send your photo/video content of Inuktun gear (tracks, cameras, lights, sensors, end effectors, and of course our crawler vehicles) at the job site and it could end up on our blog, on TRACK.
