In this episode of Robots in Depth, Per Sjöborg speaks with Andrew Graham about snake arm robots that can get into impossible locations and do things no other system can.

Andrew tells the story about starting OC Robotics as a way to ground his robotics development efforts in a customer need. He felt that making something useful gave a great direction to his projects.

We also hear about some of the unique properties of snake arm robots:
– They can fit in any space that the tip of the robot can get through
– They can operate in very tight locations as they are flexible all along and therefore do not sweep large areas to move
– They are easy to seal up so that they don’t interact with the environment they operate in
– They are set up in two parts where the part exposed to the environment and to risk is the cheaper part

Andrew then shares some interesting insights from the many projects he has worked on, from fish processing and suit making to bomb disposal and servicing of nuclear power plants.

This interview was recorded in 2015.
