Pipebots aims to revolutionise buried pipe infrastructure management with the development of micro-robots designed to work in underground pipe networks and dangerous sites.

Our vision

is an intelligent, robust and resilient buried pipe system that moves us towards failure free operation and so ends unnecessary & unplanned road excavation.

Our ambition

is to create the new science, knowledge, technical capabilities and means of practical translation to transform the capabilities of utilities to manage their buried pipe networks.

Our research objectives

  • to develop a new science of sensing for high fidelity in-pipe inspection;
  • to integrate this new science with robotic, navigation and communication solutions to work autonomously in large buried infrastructure networks;
  • to advance this science from a laboratory prototype to field scales;
  • to engage actively with the end user community throughout the project to address their technical challenges;
  • to co-create the research with key UK stakeholders to ensure a rapid uptake of this technology;
  • to establish a world leading research Centre of Autonomous Sensing for Buried Infrastructure.
