3D Prototyped Underwater Robot To Solve Pipe Problem

Last December the European Union launched a project called TRACT. The project, which now encompasses a number of companies and research centres, has been initiated to develop the robotic inspection of various different types of pipes, which is to include complex branched pipe systems, to enable quantative measurements about those systems without having to temporarily close them down. A 3D printed prototype being developed for this project – a robot that looks something like a cross between an motorised eel and a mechanical water snake – has been of great use to the project and it’s developers.
