Osaka Gas has teamed with Osaka University Professor Koichi Osuka to develop this pipe inspection robot. The body can adjust to different sizes of pipes by expanding or reducing its size, moves in a spiraling motion and can make turns and get through joints. Mounted on wheels, it can hold a camera for remote viewing by the operator.
