Pipeline transports oil and gases for far distances. Routine maintenance is necessary for these pipes which avoid any abnormality things such as, crack, leakage or deposit. Although it’s less common, corrosion also can occur on the inside surface of the pipe and reduces the strength of the pipe. If crack goes undetected and becomes severe, the pipe can leak and, in rare cases, fail catastrophically. Extensive efforts are made to mitigate corrosion. Hence it is important to maintain it safely and economically, therefore the robot becomes most useful product available for this purpose. Automated inspection of the inner surface of a pipe can be achieved by a mobile robot. In the present project, trial has been made to design the robot in such a way that it moves with lower pace, which is highly necessary for the function of inspection. The wheels of the robot are designed in such a way so that it can traverse inside a curved surface of the pipe without slipping .it is also designed such that it is totally automated and controlled by Smartphone using Bluetooth.
