New Energy and Industrial Technology Development Organization (NEDO)

As part of a NEDO project, iXs Research Corporation will conduct a demonstration test of a bridge inspection robot they have developed on December 2 at Akigase Bridge in Saitama Prefecture.

This demonstration test will be conducted as part of efforts of Saitama Prefecture to promote the robot industry. The effectiveness of the road bridge inspection technology will be verified by having the robot capture and process images of the girders of the road bridge as it moves underneath them.

Through these efforts, NEDO will accelerate the societal implementation of robots in the field of infrastructure operation and maintenance.
