Gecko Robotics Raises $7M for Boiler Inspection Robots
Posted: 2018-9-3Y Combinator-backed Gecko Robotics has raised a $7 million A-round of financing for wall-climbing robots.
Gecko’s proprietary magnetic adhesion technology works much like the sticky foot of a gecko, allowing its robots to crawl up walls to inspect for damage along the way.
According to Gecko, most plants must shut down at least once a year to check for damage to the boiler. To do these inspections crews install 150-foot scaffolds and climb up the walls in search of areas in need of repair. On top of t...Read More.
