Voliro is developing a 360° drone specialized for industrial inspection. The Voliro T drone (flying robot) can be equipped with a variety of Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) sensors, depending on the use-case. At present we focus on EMAT, UT and DFT sensors. Voliro works with inspection service-providers and asset owners by offering the Voliro T under a subscription-based model. We are currently operating with a select number of industry partners. Contact us to find out more about our Beta program.

The Voliro T is safe and easy to fly thanks to advanced assistive technology relying on a host of onboard sensors. The Voliro T is intended for use in a two-person inspection workflow, allowing the pilot and inspector to work together seamlessly. While the pilot focuses on flying the robot, the inspector can concentrate on the measurement data.

Subscription-Based Model

Voliro’s powerful aerial robotics platform is supported by a strong ecosystem of applications delivered via our own and third-party capabilities. In order to provide the best possible customer experience and comprehensive support, Voliro offers the Voliro T under a subscription-based model. The exact service is always adjusted to the customer’s needs.

The subscription model enables Voliro to provide our customers with a comprehensive service encompassing all aspects of maintenance, upgrading, training and support. Our customers always have a highly advanced flying robot at their disposal.

Safe and Reliable by Design

Based on a unique 360o design, the Voliro T is capable of hovering at any given orientation and exerting precise forces on the structure. This allows for stable contact and reliable measurements at predetermined locations, even on curved and tilted surfaces.
Tiltable rotor design makes the Voliro T resistant to wind gusts and turbulence close to the structure.

Easy-to-fly Close to Structure

The Voliro T relies on advanced perception systems to stabilize itself in GPS-denied areas close to structures. A real-time video stream from an onboard FPV camera helps to create an intuitive flying experience and provides the pilot with the necessary awareness of the flying robot’s surroundings.

The Voliro T comes with several assistive systems that allow it to:
  • Sense and avoid obstacles around it
  • Lock itself to a surface of any orientation
  • Perform a controlled approach and maintain stable contact to inspect the surface

    High-Quality Inspection Data

    The Voliro T can be configured to have various Non-Destructive Testing (NDT) sensor payloads. Once the pilot guides the flying robot to place the NDT sensor in contact with the surface, the inspector can view real-time measurement data via a tablet interface and store the measurements for review at a later time.

    Some of the possible NDT use-cases with the Voliro T are:
    • Ultrasonic Testing (UT) for flaw detection or thickness measurements of metals and composites
    • A cutting-edge Electro Magnetic Acoustic Transducer (EMAT) for couplant-free thickness measurements of metallic surfaces that requires no surface preparation
    • Precise coating thickness measurements with a Dry-Film Thickness (DFT) gauge
    For a detailed overview and specifications of NDT sensor options, please reach out to us.

    Simplified Inspection Workflow

    Time-synced pictures, videos and thickness measurements can be directly uploaded to the cloud at the end of the inspection routine. Voliro’s reporting solution allows the inspector to review the collected data quickly and generate inspection reports in a matter of minutes.


    Safety and efficiency are paramount to various industries. Our flying inspection robot is an innovative solution, allowing our customers to improve the quality of their inspections and preserve their assets. By choosing Voliro’s flying inspection robot, our customers increase the safety of their workers, while significantly reducing inspection costs. Visual and contact-based inspections can be conducted more frequently, and asset maintenance as a whole is significantly improved.
