A pipe inspection robot is a device that is inserted into a pipe to check for any obstruction or damage. Basically, these robots are manufactured offshore and are most expensive. Also, these robots often not adequately support in the event or malfunction. Hence its maintenance is difficult. In this paper we have described about a Pipe Inspection Robot that monitors inside the pipe, recognizes faults by capturing continuous video throughout the robotic path and sends the captured video to the monitoring system using wireless communication for the correction of problems. The Pipe Inspection Robot has the ability to travel inside horizontal and vertical pipes, and also it consists of a jaw that helps to pick the obstacle out from the pipe.
