Autonomous inspections and
monitoring for ports & terminals

Industrial site operators have to find a delicate balance – maximizing production
while ensuring site safety, security and regulatory compliance.

Operational innovation with autonomous robots

Increasing competition and higher transparency of shipping processes drives operators to seek innovative technologies aimed at improving their terminals’ operations. Teams responsible for safety, security and productivity often lack visibility into operations due to the logistics and expense of data collection.

Autonomous robots managed by Percepto AIM are equipped with machine vision capabilities to provide visual data to port & terminal personnel around the globe. With tangible ROI, Percepto enables 24/7 security patrols of coastal and sea lines, routine inspection of the terminal’s vicinity, and continuous monitoring of container lots.
