Explore the unexplored and inspect the inaccessible with the VIR-1, the game-changing mini robot in demanding industrial environments.

Step into a new era of visual inspection and exploration with the VIR-1, a cutting-edge robot that combines innovative technology and geometry to access the most inaccessible areas of the naval, petrochemical, and other industries. With its compact size, autonomy, and ability to move on ferromagnetic surfaces, the VIR-1 revolutionizes inspection and exploration in challenging environments.

Context and field of application

The VIR-1 is a mini remotely operated robot specifically designed for visual inspections and exploration in challenging industrial environments. With its innovative technology, wireless control system, and HD video feedback, it is capable of traversing vertical ferromagnetic metal walls, enabling visual inspections and exploration of previously inaccessible areas. Some of the application areas include:

  • Boat and submarine hulls: inspection of internal and external hulls, verification of pressurized equipment and pipelines.
  • Petrochemical industry: inspection of tanks, spheres, and storage tanks.
  • Energy industry: inspection of metal structures and components in power plants and nuclear facilities.
  • Shipbuilding: inspection of bilges, watertight compartments, and internal structures.

The VIR-1 offers great versatility with its compact size and wireless autonomy, allowing for visual inspections and exploration of environments that were previously impossible to reach.

Access to areas once inaccessible thanks to its innovative technology and disconcerting ease of use.
Wireless control up to 500 meters for free inspection.


Superior video inspections thanks to the wide-angle Full HD camera and ultra-bright 1000 nits monitor screen.
Water resistance up to 2 meters deep (IP68) and robust design in aluminum alloy, stainless steel and POM-C.


Minimization of risks for operators thanks to remote inspections.
Improved security of previously inaccessible inspected facilities.
Little intrusive, light and not very dangerous, minimizing the consequences on the installations in the event of a fall.


Exceptional adaptability with modular wheels to cope with various environments and challenges
