Nowadays buildings examination and analysis require high precision and high results processing speed. For these purposes, robotic technologies are being gradually put into production. Advantages and disadvantages of different models were analyzed. On the basis of these conclusions about the promising directions of improvement of the devices were made. A common problem for all kinds of robots today is the accuracy of the processed results. Studies have shown that the use of ultrasonic waves for determining the damage level and the ability to make a three-dimensional model of the inspected object are one of the most important directions of development. The implementation of these functions for robots will lead to improvements in safety and productivity of the workflow.
