Pipe Inspection Robot Design and Implementation
Alp Gokcedaglioglu, Caner Kersolar, Kaplan Kaplan, Ahmet Erdil
The main purpose of this study is to be able to identify the faults, corrosion and surfaces in pipes that are difficult to reach in buildings, structures, infrastructure works and sewers. Technically, this robot has been developed to be able to move not only within a single pipe but also within various different diameter pipes. In addition, the robot can easily reach the places that are not very suitable for health. There are also some prohibited areas of human access, such as nuclear power plants, refineries, natural gas pipelines and exhaust systems. The robot can also reach the point that people can not enter due to human dimensions. In other words, faults that occur these places can be critical for human life. Therefore, the robot can receive, diagnose and process the data in these areas.
