The small robot that has a huge impact
SOLO® is the world’s first truly unmanned robot for small-diameter pipe inspection and has radically changed the way collection system managers approach operations and management. Typical daily production rates far outpace conventional methods allowing you to inspect accurately and efficiently.
With SOLO you never miss a defect. Field operator variability is eliminated as a factor influencing data quality. Video captured by SOLO allows the viewer to remotely pan, tilt, and zoom an entire pipe segment 360 degrees.
Pano-spheric cameras offer 360-degree views
Front and rear pano-spheric camera views are stitched together to create a 360-degree video of the interior of the pipe, eliminating the need for manipulating the camera while in the field and shortening deployment times.

Get clear, robust video and imagery with pan, tilt, zoom capability to help you make your most important decisions.
Need to gather miles of small-diameter pipe data quickly and efficiently without loss of quality? With deployments of 10-15 minutes from, SOLO decreases the requirement for traffic management and community disruption. On average, SOLO can gather 3,000 feet of data per day, per deployment crew, when utilizing multiple units.
Compact and easy to deploy in any location accessible by an operator on foot, SOLO allows access to manholes traditional, vehicle-based CCTV can not. SOLO’s slim, portable build also means less manpower to prep and deploy.
Launched in 2009, SOLO not only changed the industry, it continues to set the standard for small-diameter pipe inspection. With over a decade of experience, SOLO delivers dependable and trustworthy inspection data with 6 times the inspection throughput versus conventional CCTV.
Rapid Deployment and Shortened Timelines with SOLO Squads
The average SOLO deployment is 10-15 minutes from arrival on site to closing the manhole once the unit has been launched. Once launched, SOLO autonomously traverses the pipeline using on board sensors ensure that the unit can safely progress.
If a blockage or obstruction is found, the unit will make three attempts to get past prior to returning to the launch site. Upon reaching the end of the pipe, SOLO will return to the original site for collection and redeployment.
SOLO can also be launched in squads, of up to 4, in order to gather footage more efficiently.
