Abstract: The purpose of the RG 93/98 is to explore the most economical and effective mean to conduct maintenance tasks inside pipelines or conduits. If a structural crack is found on the surface of gas or fluid transport structures, more often than not the repair work would be done through excavation if these structures are situated underground. These would create considerable impact both socially and economically. As such, a robot capable of maneuvering within the internal pipe structure will be design, fabricated and assembled. The objectives for this project are identified to be: 1. Build a prototype internal pipe inspection robot (mechanical structure and locomotion mechanism). 2. Learn and cope with technologies in the field of service robot in confined space. 3. Develop a cost-effective approach in building mobile robot.
