Abstract

In this study, a novel, vibrating bristled vehicle for small pipes is proposed. Its drive mechanism with two rotating eccentric weights and bristles is simulated and analyzed. The moving mechanism is examined and clarified by motion simulations and experiments conducted using a vehicle with numerous bristles. The fabricated vehicle moves smoothly in a pipe with an internal diameter of 80 mm at a velocity of 0.18 m/sec.
