INMERBOT: Research in immersive and sensory technologies for collaborative industrial robotic inspection


Project subsidised by the Centre for the Development of Industrial Technology (CDTI), this project has been supported by the Ministry of Science and Innovation.

Digital Innovation


This project arises from the existing limitations in efficient human-robot and robot-robot collaboration in inspection and maintenance environments of industrial facilities. The scope of the INMERBOT project is to advance knowledge of teleoperation and management of multi-robot systems in highly immersive environments for inspection and maintenance applications, which involves research into haptic and robotic technologies, analysis of the environment using various sensors, as well as research into the use of artificial intelligence for mobility, defect detection and reconstruction of the environment based on data from sensors and vision cameras.

The consortium of this project is led by TSK with the participation of ALISYS, COTESA, ECAPTURE, ROBOTNIK, APTICA, GPA SEABOTS and SYLTEC. The ITCL and LEITAT technology centres and the Polytechnic University of Madrid and the University of Oviedo are also collaborating.

TSK is mainly participating in the project by researching immersive technologies (virtual, augmented and mixed reality) for remote operation and interaction with multi-robot systems in industrial inspection scenarios. It will also work on the design of new sensors and artificial intelligence algorithms for the detection of events and anomalies.
