Title (EN) INSPECTION VEHICLE WITH MAINTENANCE TOOLS
(FR) VÉHICULE D'INSPECTION DOTÉ D'OUTILS DE MAINTENANCE
Abstract:
(EN) An inspection vehicle (16, 100) operable for performing one or more maintenance and repair operations in a housing filled at least partially with a liquid medium is disclosed in the present application. The inspection vehicle (16, 100) includes a propulsion device (64) operable in the liquid medium and includes at least one sensor (48) operable for sensing and transmitting data associated therewith. A control system (20, 60) including an electronic controller is in electronic communication with the inspection vehicle (16, 100) to transmit and receive communication signals to/from the inspection vehicle (16, 100). One or more maintenance tools (110A, 110B, 172) operable by the inspection vehicle are configured to perform maintenance and/or repair operations within the liquid filled housing.
(FR) La présente invention concerne un véhicule d'inspection ayant pour fonction d'effectuer une ou plusieurs opérations de maintenance et de réparation dans un logement rempli au moins partiellement d'un milieu liquide. Le véhicule d'inspection comprend un dispositif de propulsion utilisable dans le milieu liquide et comprend au moins un capteur ayant pour fonction de détecter et de transmettre des données associées à ce dernier. Un système de commande comprenant un dispositif de commande électronique est en communication électronique avec le véhicule d'inspection pour transmettre des signaux de communication au véhicule d'inspection et en recevoir de ce dernier. Un ou plusieurs outils de maintenance utilisables avec le véhicule d'inspection sont conçus pour effectuer des opérations de maintenance et/ou de réparation dans le logement rempli de liquide.
