CES 2023: Engineers create a snake-like robot that can move inside water pipes

Posted by in categories: robotics/AI, sustainability

The intelligent robot ‘evolves’ inside the pipe, without stopping water distribution.

At a time when a significant proportion of people face scarcity of drinking water, a staggering 32 billion m3 of clean water is lost a year due to faulty distribution networks around the world. This is where technologies like ACWA Robotics’ Pathfinder autonomous robot become a much-relevant product for utilities. The system can navigate at the heart of the water supply network without disrupting water distribution to users to provide actionable data.


According to a UN report, worldwide water demand is expected to exceed supply by 40 per cent by 2030, and waste of water in the supply chain is something that cities cannot afford anymore.
