Presenter: Thiago Azevedo – Founder and CEO of ZOA Robotics
Day One – 10:30-11:15
Title: Improve operating efficiencies and significantly reduce exposure to people with ZOA Robotics
Day Two – 11:00-11:45
ZOA Robotics is creating serviced robotic solutions for regular inspection of industrial sites. ZOA's Zeta robotic platform creates large, data-dense maps of entire sites, providing an incredibly detailed picture of plant assets.
At this workshop founder and chief executive Thiago will address the recent trend towards robotic inspections, the benefits of digitisation, and how Zeta’s thermal, gas, visual and other sensors can help clients to achieve high operational reliability while improving safety for operators.
Join ZOA Robotics and learn how ZOA’s new generation of service robots will revolutionise inspections and deliver a step-change in condition and integrity monitoring on industrial sites.
