Various alternative aircraft inspection methods are first discussed and advantages of using robots are analysed. ANDI (Automated NonDestructive Inspector) and CIMP (Crown Inspection Mobile Platform) are then described. Remote 3D stereoscopic visual inspection is outlined and algorithms developed for crack detection and surface and subsurface corrosion detection are described. Future development trends are also outlined
