RedZone Robotics is proud to be exhibiting at WaterJAM 2020. This exciting event is the place for water and wastewater professionals to share, inform, and commend infrastructure challenges and stories across Virginia. Even virtual, there’s always an opportunity to collaborate! We look forward to those stopping by to learn how new technologies and services can assist with their system management.
Fairfax County, VA
RedZone field crews have spent the last few months assisting with NASSCO Level 1 MACP inspections for hundreds of manholes, ensuring proper prioritization for rehabilitation planning. Additionally, Multi-Sensor Inspections (MSI) on large diameter trunks provided Fairfax with quantifiable information about the structural integrity of some of their most critical pipes. RedZone utilized the Profiler asset, a floating platform capable of long-distance deployments, which collects CCTV, Sonar, and 2D Laser measurements.

For over 5 years, RedZone has performed multi-sensor inspections with the City of Richmond utilizing the Responder platform. This robotic crawler is designed for the harsh and fast flows of Richmond’s trunk and interceptor system. To date, Responder has collected tens of thousands of feet of CCTV, Sonar, and 3D Lidar data. This allows the City to better predict and prevent catastrophic failures with best-in-class data.

In a collaboration with Draper Aden Associates, a sponsor for WaterJam 2020, RedZone’s Solo robot has been extensively used to assist Smithfield in meeting their annual inspection requirements. Smithfield and Draper Aden have deployed these robots for many years, providing an excellent way to achieve their goals and establish preventative maintenance plans. The SOLO unit is lightweight and portable, which grants access to easements and hard to reach areas. This autonomous crawler also allows for a 360-degree view ensuring you don’t miss a defect!
