This project is a Prototype model of “Pipeline Inspection Crawler for Fault Detection”. This Model presents a mechanism to traverse a Machine inside a pipe with forwarding and backward motion and should also do vertical climbing in the pipe.
This project deals with a design and motion planning algorithm of a caterpillar-based pipeline Machine that can be used for the view inside of 8-inch pipelines in an indoor pipeline environment. The Machine system consists of a Machine body, a CMOS camera. The Machine system uses a differential drive to steer the Machine and spring-loaded four-bar mechanisms to assure that the Machine expands to have the grip of the pipe walls. Unique features of this Machine are the caterpillar wheel; the four-bar mechanism supports the good grip of the wall, a simple and easy user interface.
Key Words: Design and implementation of pipe cleaner robot, Four Bar link mechanism, Suspension Mechanism etc.
