A robot for Gazprom is being developed at Innopolis
The robot for 'in-pipe' works is being developed for Gazprom at the National Competence Centre of the National Technological Initiative in the Field of Robotics and Mechatronics at the Innopolis University. It will be able to check pipes from inside to see if there are any signs of corrosion and damage. Kirill Semenikhin, the director of the University, told that to journalists on the sidelines of the conference 'Digital Industry of Industry of Russia' (CIPR-2018).
«Nine projects are already being implemented … Among them there is the project for Aeroflot and Gazprom — that is the project for development of an 'in-pipe' robot that looks at a pipe from inside to check for corrosion and potential wear and collects chip scraps at the same time,» he said, without specifying the timing of the project.
