Title
(EN) WIRELESS INSPECTION ROBOT FOR NATURAL GAS PIPE
(FR) ROBOT D'INSPECTION SANS FIL POUR CONDUITE DE GAZ NATUREL
Abstract
(EN)
The invention is a robot (10) for traveling in a first path (510) in a pipe (500). The first path (510) referred to herein refers to an imaginary line passing through the center of the pipe (500) along the pipe (500). A front body (101) comprises a rear body (102) connected with the said front body (101). More specifically, the invention is a spark-proof wireless in-pipe inspection robot (10), which continuously travels autonomously in the natural gas pipeline, detecting internal surface defects of the pipe by image processing and providing position information to the external environment.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un robot (10) destiné à se déplacer sur un premier trajet (510) dans une conduite (500). Selon l'invention, le premier trajet (510) est une ligne imaginaire passant par le centre de la conduite (500), le long de celle-ci (500). Un corps avant (101) comprend un corps arrière (102) relié audit corps avant (101). L'invention concerne plus particulièrement un robot d'inspection sans fil anti-étincelles (10) situé à l'intérieur d'une conduite et se déplaçant en continu de façon autonome dans la canalisation de gaz naturel, détectant ainsi des défauts de surface interne de la conduite par traitement d'images et fournissant à l'environnement externe des informations de position.
