Minimize industrial site shutdowns while meeting ESG goals
Autonomous inspections powered by AI detect changes, faults and emissions as soon as they happen.
Any facility can drive down costs, while improving worker safety and operational continuity – with autonomous robots performing frequent, high quality inspections. During construction, day-to-day operations and shutdowns or turnarounds, automating inspections are key for safe and efficient operations.
Autonomous inspections at leading industrial facilities:
We can fly every single day and use image recognition to be able to identify a potential issue and reduce the number of outages to our customers.

ICL Dead Sea fully automates inspection rounds. ICL Dead Sea, a leading global manufacturer of potash and other minerals, transformed their manual inspections of site assets including their electric grid, pipes and piles, into automated site inspections with Percepto’s drone-in-a-box. Managed by Percepto AIM, the previously manual site inspections are now performed with no human involvement.

Top use cases at industrial facilities:
Pipe inspections with RGB and thermal cameras detect structural defects as well as insulation faults and environmental breeches.
Monitoring actual turnaround progress and safety on a daily and hourly basis for accurate up-to-date monitoring.
The Air Max is the only drone-in-a-box with OGI camera, capable of detecting gas emissions.
Operations & maintenance
Regularly monitor for “housekeeping” tasks – and never miss an open hatch, equipment left out or other hazards.
3D pile inspection
Conduct pre-scheduled automatic tank inspection missions scanning for environmental hazards, structural damage and other faults.
Emergency response and security
Autonomous robots act as first responders in the event of any emergency, and perform automated security patrols.
Water level inspection
Robots safely report on pool wall integrity, amount of solids in the pool, water levels, deposition patterns and more.
Percepto’s solution for heavy industrial sites consists of autonomous robots managed by Percepto AIM deployed across a site, with a sophisticated cloud backend for AI-powered site inspections, monitoring, surveillance, and visual data collection & management.
Percepto enables industrial sites to:
Detect corrosion, leaks, poor insulation and more as soon as they happen – preventing faults from turning into shutdowns.
Streamline construction & turnarounds
Effectively meet deadlines and ensure safety with 24/7 autonomous monitoring and AI.
Inspect and monitor your facilities from anywhere in the world, with autonomous drones and robots.
Detect spills, leaks & other hazards protecting your employees, the environment and the surrounding community.
Autonomous inspections for heavy industrial sites
Industrial site monitoring is the process of measuring and recording parameters at a specific location in order to assess the status of an industrial plant or facility. This can be done manually, with human operators performing measurements and recording data, or automatically using sensors that are connected to computers and other devices.
The main purpose of this type of industrial inspections is to ensure that all aspects of the facility operate within safe limits and standards and to ensure efficient operations. Industrial site monitoring can also help to identify problems before they become serious enough to cause damage to the facility. It can also provide information about how well the facility is being managed, which can lead to cost savings by reducing downtime and increasing efficiency.
Site inspections can be conducted manually or automatically. Manual inspections require a person to physically visit each area of interest. This method is time consuming and expensive. Automated inspections use sensors to detect anomalies in the environment. These anomalies are then reported to operators who respond accordingly.
Automated inspections are typically used for large areas such as warehouses and factories. They have been found to be effective at detecting problems early on and reducing downtime.
Industrial sites are often prone to theft, and require perimeter surveillance monitoring to detect intruders. Industrial perimeter monitoring can be done in a few ways:
- Manually, often in vehicle patrols
- With on-site security cameras or sensors
- With automated drones or robots
These methods are often combined to offer the greatest level of security.
By routinely inspecting industrial site assets, you can reduce risks and costs associated with unexpected events. Routine inspections help prevent costly repairs by identifying issues before they become major problems. If a problem is identified during an inspection, it may be possible to resolve the issue without incurring significant repair costs.
If a problem occurs after the fact, it will likely cost much more than if it was detected earlier.
Industrial site inspections are conducted in one or more of the following ways:
- Using aerial photography
- Using ground-based inspections
- Using remotely operated vehicles (ROV)
During an industrial site inspection, site assets are monitored and inspected to ensure that they are operating within their design parameters. The purpose of this process is to identify potential problems before they cause damage to your property.
