THESbot Robot: Semi-Autonomous Pipe Inspection Robot
The THESBot Dual is semi-autonomous and can handle inspection of 6″ pipes. It has a traction system that allows it to adapt to different geometries and obstacles. Its front camera allows for visual inspection of hard to reach areas. The modular THESBOT has an umbilical cable trailing from its rear end, which is hard-wired to the joystick control unit used by the operator. That person views live video from the robot's "head"-mounted LED-equipped video camera, remotely panning and tilting the camera as needed, along with controlling THESBOT's speed and direction.
