dc.description.abstractIn-pipe robot is one of the important concepts to achieve automated pipeline maintenance such as inspection, cleaning and repairing. In order to identify available technologies that can perform maintenance of large-diameter sewerage tunnel, a study aimed to review existing pipeline and tunnel robots is then carried out. This kind of robots can be classified into 9 types of robotic system, namely PIG, Wheels, Crawler, Cylindrical, Legs, Inchworm, Helical, Snake and VVPIG type. This study implies that the research on pipeline and tunnel robot has been focusing only on single maintenance task and most of them just aim for small diameter pipelines. In future work, a robot that can perform multifunction for the maintenance of large-diameter sewerage tunnel will be developed.en_US
