Robotized system for in-pipe inspection using pressure tolerant electronics technique

Conference:

Abstract

This paper reports the development and experimental evaluation of a robotized system devised to perform two kinds of measurements inside a pipeline: the thickness of the internal wall painting layer and the internal radius. The thickness measurement allows the inspection of the painting layer quality and by measuring several radii it is possible to estimate the pipeline transversal section shape. The proposed scheme is shown to yield very satisfactory results on an actual 14'' (inches) pipeline in a real site. (author)
