Pipeline Inspection Robot by using Arduino
This paper proposes a design for pipeline inspection robot that can detect various pipe cracks internally by using
camera at very low cost. The economic value of pipelines which are used in industry for various purposes is very large.
Pipeline inspection has become an important issue as replacement of defected pipeline is more costly as well as more
complicated. Here the unique 3W chassis design and camera with micro SD card slot is selected for pipeline inspection
robot. The hardware part consists of bot chassis, ARDUINO UNO board, Cmos-Camera with SD card slot, DC geared
motors and motor drivers, LED’s etc. The detection part done on the images by using MATLAB which are captured by
camera. The propose design valid for 7 to 8 inch diameter of pipe.
