In the previous chapter, brief descriptions of various types of mechanisms related to pipe crawling robots are provided. However, for the beginner to carry out the mechanical design of pipe-crawling robots, one needs to consider an elementary problem of moving a pipe crawling robot in a horizontal gas pipe network where the pressure of the gas can provide necessary kinetic energy to the robot locomotion.
