Inquiring about Robotic Snake Arms for Inspection from the SR Community

Mon, July 31, 2023

To the SPRINT Robotics Community,


We would like to inquire from companies who use robotic snake arms for inspection purposes.

We want to get a better understanding of the following:

•              The current capabilities / limitations on SotA snake arms

•              Their integration with ground robotics (arm on a moving platform for example)


We want to inquire if there are any service providers from the SPRINT Robotics Community, who already provide inspection services using the robotic snake arms?

Our main targets are technology companies who are currently working on these technologies.

We also welcome feedback (comments, suggestions, recommendations) from your user experience and insight if the robotic snake arms have been useful.

We see the robotic snake arms' main application in Pressure Vessels, and we are open to applying this in other possible use cases.

A chance to network and reach out to you will be very helpful.


Kindly get in touch with Mr. Tycho Brug (, Robotic Program Lead for Shell; cc: Kuldeep Kumar (


We look forward to hearing from you!

Thank you.
