ELIS Technologies Releases Mobile, Fully Autonomous Robot for Geomembrane Leak Detection

Share Article

With a performance and research history spanning over 25 years, Ireland-based ELIS Technologies has developed the first fully autonomous leak detection robot for geomembrane liners.

Geomembrane liners are engineered to be high-strength and chemically resistant, yet they remain susceptible to mechanical damage, especially during the installation process, transportation, and use-related wear.

The costs that companies face in combating this problem are significant, as the vast majority of leak monitoring services are performed manually by highly trained professional members of staff.

As a result, defects and punctures that impact the effectiveness of a geomembrane to act as a barrier often result in leakage and well-documented adverse effects on the environment.

Through the use of high-accuracy monitoring tools, ELIS Technologies removes human error while addressing the negative impact of industrialization on the environment.

Leading market research company Stratistics MRC predicts that the global geomembrane market will reach almost $4 billion internationally within the next three years, with over 250 million square meters currently produced every year.

Geomembrane usage in North American and European landfills grows at a rate of 5 percent per year, while in other parts of the world this number is two to three times higher.

"ELIS sensors are up to 100 times more precise than previously available technology, offering clients industrial caliber dependability coupled with vastly reduced survey durations," said Tomas Gregor, Chief Technology Officer of ELIS Technologies Ltd.

By fully automating the methods used to both oversee and evaluate information by way of GPS mapping, AI procedures and drone technology, ELIS monitoring systems can; observe isolated areas that have proven challenging to access in the past, operate without continuous supervision by way of GPS self-navigation, carry out tasks under adverse weather conditions, and provide 24/7 access to AI-enhanced data analytics.

Coupled with the launch of a utility token used as a unit of account within the ELIS platform, ELIS Technologies becomes the first company to take the step of issuing monitoring survey accreditation which can be authenticated via the Ethereum blockchain. Furthermore, the ELIS utility token provides access to upgraded releases of programs and services at heavily discounted rates.

About ELIS Technologies Ltd:

ELIS Technologies Ltd is an Ireland-based robotics and AI enterprise that develops drones and systems which integrate proprietary 3D GPS eMapping.

3D GPS eMapping autonomously navigates robots and drones during measurements, gathers spatial readings of electric field potentials as well as GPS coordinates. Data are then interpreted by a neuronal network and recorded on a public blockchain. This creates indisputable proof of measurement, parameters and outcomes.

Currently, ELIS Technologies is cooperating with blue-chip clients from all over the world, including Marius Pedersen, Teva Pharmaceuticals, STRABAG International, and many others.
