Pipeline inspection is necessary in order to detect the build-up of deposits or cracks before they become an issue. Inspection is usually carried out by a team of skilled access technicians with a first-aid rescue team on standby. Manned inspection can be very dangerous and costly. A far safer solution is inspection by robot. The majority of inspection robots on the market are small, mostly catering for small pipelines. This report will focus on the concept development of an inspection robot that can inspect large diameter pipelines greater than 1.5 metres.
