Waygate Technologies Robotics (WTR) was founded in 2006 as ALSTOM Inspection Robotics and transitioned to GE in 2015. In 2020, the business was acquired by Waygate Technologies (WT), a Baker Hughes business. Waygate Technologies is an industrial inspection solutions company and world leader in non-destructive testing (NDT). Waygate Technologies Robotics develops mobile inspection robots for large-scale facilities in the field of power generation and industrial processing. These devices increase the availability of facilities thanks to shorter servicing intervals, and improve safety for people and the environment. WT Robotics’ products are characterized by innovation, everyday reliability and a robustness appropriate for industrial conditions.

Role in the project and main tasks

Waygate Technologies Robotics (WTR) is leading WP 3 (Adaptation of robotic platforms and data gathering) providing deep knowledge of inspection and maintenance procedures and requirements as well as of designing and realisation robust, industry proven product. WTR will be mainly involved with the development of crawler robotic systems, including their advanced autonomous functionalities. On the other hand, WTR will support the integration and pilot experimentation related tasks. Finally, WTR leads the cooperation task with DIH and other H2020 projects.
