Many kinds of pipes are being utilized to construct important lifelines such as water and gas supply in our contemporary society. Also pipes are widely used in chemical industries and in gulf countries for carrying petrol, diesel, oil etc. But after some years these pipes get damaged and defects are occurring in pipe. If the defects in the pipe are caused by rust and nature calamity, it is difficult to find out the defects and the location of the defects, and also there is great amount of loss of fluids and gases. Thus scheduled inspection must be done. If we decide to do this inspection manually then large amount of time, effort and labour is necessary to grub up the pipes that are buried in the ground. If the robot can inspect inside the pipes, fast and accurate examination will be able to be done at low cost. Size and shape adaptability will be achieved by chuck-jaw mechanism.
