Abstract

With the rapid development of modern society, cities have become increasingly dependent on infrastructure such as natural gas and air conditioning pipelines. At the same time, advances in key industries such as oil, chemicals, and nuclear have made pipelines an important bridge between homes and cities, as well as between continents. With the increasing complexity of pipeline systems, the need for pipeline maintenance and repair has become more urgent. In order to solve this problem, the in-tube robot technology has emerged and has been extensively researched and developed in practical applications. Especially in unique working environments like offshore drilling platforms, in-pipe robots must possess robust vertical walking capabilities while also meeting stringent waterproofing and anti-static requirements. These harsh conditions are necessary to ensure the robot operates stably in a complex environment, guaranteeing absolute safety and reliability. The development of in-pipe robot technology can be considered a significant assurance for the safe operation of pipeline systems in modern society.
