Underground Pipeline Detection Robot
In order to prevent the third party companies from possible damages to infrastructural equipment and concern for people's safety, detection of metal underground pipeline and cable placement is very important. TIRC works with infrastructure companies to apply their insight in developing solutions to address their needs. Thus Underground Pipeline Detection Robot was developed. Using the intelligent navigation and obstacle avoidance algorithm, the robot can patrol at a predetermined route and using magnetic array detection system , it can map out 6 x 10 sq. meters in 15 minutes and create a sensitive map that shows the locations of all infrastructures together (Electricity lines, natural gas pipes, water pipes, waste water channels, rainwater channels, telephone lines, cable TV cables, oil pipes, etc…) within 5 meters deep. Through the integrated features, it is designed to reduce human error and increase work site safety.
