vehicle in pipeline, pendulums with magnets
We propose a wheeled in-pipe robot using pendulums with magnets for visual inspection. The robot runs in-100 [mm] diameter pipelines including elbows and T -joints. We describe a prototype robot that has successfully run through level pipelines, perpendicular pipelines, and elbows, and has turned to each directions in T -joints, even through avoiding small plugs.
