- The development of an inspection robot for in-service steel tubular poles is described in the article. Based on the design requirement analysis to the steel tubular poles used in China, the design requirement is presented. By compared with the deferent technology, TOFD technique and magnetic wheel are chosen to use in the project. On the other hand, with unique design of separation and reconnecting device, it made the robot can climb the poles, hold on the poles, do the inspection work in both vertical and horizontal direction. The field test proved that the robot can be widely used for the inspection work of in-service steel tubular poles after a few work in future.
