Abstract:The TISCALI project aims to use the non-destructive pipe inspection method called impact echo for inspection of the sewer, which is done by making impacts at different locations on the inner circumference of the sewer pipe and recording and analysing the acoustic response. In this work, I present a mechatronic solution, which makes impact on designated circumferential locations inside the sewer pipe using impact echo. The final concept (trailer) of the mechatronic solution consists of a mechanism with scissors, rotation system and a centering system with stepper motor lead-screw actuation. Essential results are that the proposed mechatronic solution is capable of making impact on four designated locations of the same circumference of the sewer pipe.
