  • Innovative Sidewalk Inspection Robots

    As the weather gets warmer and Essa Township is arranging our annual sidewalk inspection, be prepared for your sidewalk inspectors to look a little different this summer. This year Essa Township has partnered with Top Hat Robotics to utilize their sidewalk inspection technology for our annual inspections. Top Hat Robotics is an innovative start-up located in Kitchener-Waterloo. They produce sidewalk robots for a number of work-related use-cases like detecting sidewalk deficiencies. These robots will be inspecting Essa's sidewalks this month, accompanied by a Top Hat Robotics employee who is happy to answer any questions you have about the program.

    If you have any inquiries please feel free to reach out to our public works department at (705)424-9917 or check out the Top Hat Robotics website for more information: https://www.TopHatRobotics.com/
