Abstract: Now a day facing many problems related to repairing, inspection and maintenance of interior pipelines. To avoid this risk and reduce the time of inspection, repairing, maintenance of interior pipes. One of the most important requirements in repairing and maintaining of pipelines is the ability to monitor and evaluate the pipes interior. This work deals with the modelling, simulation and prototyping of an apparatus to piping systems for inspection, cleaning and examination of the interior piping systems. The mechanism involves a central rod upon which a translational element is fitted which in turn is connected to three frames of links, joints and wheels. DC motors are attached to the wheels to achieve the drive required. The mechanism allows for small accommodation in pipe diameters. An electronic and controlling circuit consisting of relay switches is used to control the entire circuit of DC motors, camera and translational element. The camera is mounted on the top of the assembly of robot. The robot may allow for detection of cracks, buckle, corrosions, fitting and many others.

Keywords: Motors, Control relays, switches, inspection, repairing, maintenance.
