Abstract
THIS PROGRAM INVOLVES A MOBILE SEMIAUTONOMOUS ROBOTIC PIPE INSPECTION PLATFORM (ROPIP) FOR HAZARDOUS MAINTENANCE ACTIVITIES. THE DEVICE HAS SENSORY CAPABILITY AND IS MICROPROCESSOR CONTROLLABLE. A UNIQUE TECHNIQUE USING A "SMALL WORLD" APPROACH TO ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI) BY LIMITING THE "REAL WORLD" CONTACT ENVIRONMENT AND PROVIDING A READY ACCESS FOR MOBILITY LOWERS TOE SOFTWARE INPUT AND DECISION- MAKING REQUIREMENTS. THE APPROACH ALSO PROVIDES ACCESS TO LARGE AREAS THAT WOULD NOT BE ACCESSIBLE TO A TRADITIONAL MOBILE ROBOT.
