Iberdrola, SA – The Antecursor I robot sends its scans in real time all over the world
This android bases its automatic movement through facilities on a unique process patented by the Salamanca-based technology company, inspired by the hunting strategies of the genet, the nocturnal creature that inhabits our holm oak forests, capable of moving with precision. in darkness.
This more comprehensive analysis has been applied in a new way to transformer substations, providing greater traceability and worker safety – The technology allows damage assessment without the need for field visits, which translates through greater efficiency and a significant reduction in costs and CO2 emissions.
This robot is a revolutionary inspection system that improves efficiency by carrying out automatic and digital predictive maintenance of electrical infrastructures, applied in an unprecedented way to transformer stations, offering greater traceability and worker safety.

This android bases its automatic movement through electrical installations on a unique process patented by the Salamanca-based technology company, inspired by the hunting strategies of the genet, the nocturnal creature that inhabits our holm oak forests, capable of moving with precision in the dark.
The robot automatically captures data from all critical structures in the substation, using high-resolution visible and thermographic image sensors, and sends it in real time via Orange’s 5G network to the “control tower virtual”, located in the facilities of Arborea in the
Once there, this data is processed to build a digital twin and detect, measure and quantify anomalies using Salamanca’s software platforms. In addition, the data is sent, also in real time, to various
Autonomous monitoring of a substation makes it possible to detect the onset of faults more quickly and more efficiently, which is also an advantage in the event of an emergency requiring immediate monitoring. In this way, the technology makes it possible to assess the damage without having to travel to the site, which translates into greater efficiency and a significant reduction in costs and CO2 emissions.
This new process is the result of the combination
Forerunners were an elite force created by Caesar to advance the Roman legions and decide the way forward.
INNOVATION AT THE SERVICE OF TOMORROW’S ENERGY
Automatic infrastructure supervision is an area of technological development initiated more than ten years ago by Arborea, which today concentrates its efforts on the supply of high-performance and autonomous inspection systems for large offshore wind farms, essential for
This development of Arborea is based on several patents held by the company, which is very active in the generation of technological intellectual property, mainly based on biomimetic principles. Biomimetic technology is inspired by the designs or mechanisms of nature.
In recent years, Arborea drones have painstakingly audited more than 4,500 blades from Iberdrola Renovables onshore wind farms in
