Home inspectors see an increase in safety using inspection robot
Robotic inspection allows quick and low hassle examination of crawl spaces
Fuquay-Varina, NC (Jan 7, 2020): SuperDroid Robots, a leading manufacturer of inspection robots, has announced a series of improvements for their wireless inspection robot, the GPK-32. Among the improvements is the use of an industry-proven 20V DeWalt battery to power the robot and debris deflectors to keep debris out of the track drive system.
The wirelessly controlled robot was developed as a tool for use by home inspectors to remotely capture high-quality photos and videos in confined spaces that are difficult for human entry. It offers a safer and more efficient method for inspecting crawl spaces. SuperDroid Robots’ CEO Charlie Payne states, “We took the feedback of home inspectors using our robot and improved it, providing an effective, affordable tool for safely exploring hard to reach areas.”
Crawl spaces can contain a wide variety of potential dangers and health risks to home inspectors. Dangers can range from mold, feral animals, hantavirus, asbestos, and more. Using the GPK-32, home inspectors can determine if there are any risks before entering themselves. Paul Hale, a senior engineer at SuperDroid Robots, states “You’re removing the unknowns from the equation. With the [GPK-32] robot you get an idea of what’s down there and where it is before you go in.”
SuperDroid Robots will be present at the American Society of Home Inspectors (ASHI) annual InspectionWorld conference in New Orleans this January to allow home inspectors a hands-on experience with the GPK-32.
