Gecko Robotics provides full-stack robotic inspection and software modeling technology to give power plants, oil and gas, manufacturing, defense, and other sectors insights into the health of their physical assets. The information can be used to reduce carbon emissions, increase manufacturing efficiency, ensure security compliance, reduce power outages, and even determine the availability of military ships. Its platform keeps track of more than 60,000 physical assets around the globe.
“Think of it as a decision maker tool for the built world,” says Gecko Robotics’ CEO and Co-Founder Jake Loosararian. Some 60% of the energy infrastructure is past useful life or nearing it, he says. The goal is to make it last longer and avoid blackouts and brownouts. At the same time companies are trying to reduce carbon emissions and moving to Net Zero. “‘Our contention is you can solve for all of these things if you can measure data in a differentiated way,” he says. “This requires collecting information on the health of all the infrastructure that is running. decoding the physical world, building software on top and then not just using machine learning on the signals but on the data layer to decode what the raw signals are telling us and put it into context. Once you do that you can accurately map the physical health of assets to determine their availability and reliability.”
