— This paper describes the current development status of a mobile robot designed to inspect the outer surface of large oil ship hulls and Floating Production Storage Offloading (FPSO) platforms. These are usually former oil tanker ships, especially adapted to work as an oil offshore platform. Several mechanisms of corrosion are present in such structures,(More)
—This paper describes the current development status of a mobile robot designed to inspect the outer surface of large oil ship hulls and floating production storage and offloading platforms. These vessels require a detailed inspection program, using several nondestructive testing techniques. A robotic crawler designed to perform such inspections is(More)
