dotBot Robotics is a spin-off of the GSCAR group at the Federal University of Rio de Janeiro. The company is owned by three core members who have collectively led the LEAD laboratory for the past decade. Our expertise spans a wide range of areas, including terrestrial and aerial robotics, as well as award-winning pipe-riding robots. We have extensive experience in all aspects of the robotics lifecycle, from conceptual design and fabrication to operation and maintenance.

The following are our Robotic Portfolio, some developed as part of or in partnership with the GSCAR group, others independently as dotBot Robotics
ARIEL is a project with Repsol Sinopec Brasil in which a system is designed to autonomously identify oil spills, composed by a drone and a USV. Even though the USV is able to provide local measurements using sensors in contact with water, the drone is indispensable to provide high-level spatial data. Equipped with infrared and visual cameras to detect the oil spills, the drone can also take off and land on the USV autonomously. The fusion of remote sensors (SAR) and local sensors (infrared and visual cameras, and metocean sensors) allows ARIEL to create a 4D monitoring of the oil dispersion.
Winner of the 2017 ANP Technology Innovation Award, DORIS is a surveillance robot develop in a partnership with Petrobras and Equinor to monitor offshore platform reducing the risk to humans when inspecting harmful areas. An onboard manipulator is also able of interacting with the environment.
ROSI is a mobile robot designed to inspect belt conveyor machinery in the mining industry. The proposed system is a wheeled and tracked mobile platform equipped with a robotic manipulator and several sensors to allow execution of the scheduled tasks. This project is sponsored by VALE S.A.
HEADS is a stabilization system that compensates the ship motion, so the equipped infrared and visual cameras can detect oil spills with a very precise stable image of the line of sight. This project was sponsored by Repsol Sinopec Brasil.
