A new version of the rescue robot Soryu-4, Soryu-C was developed for inspection of underground pipelines that can only be reached through narrow entrances. Soryu-C can pass through 4” (100mm) pipes, and then move over gravel, sand, mud or even underwater in unstructured environments.
Due to its articulated body, Soryu-C can adapt to irregular terrain, and even climb obstacles as high as 300mm. It is equipped with cameras for optical inspection and navigation, and a 150m-long tether. Soryu-C can be equipped with an inertial system for mapping underground structures, such as pipelines.
