Abstract This paper presents the development of a high speed pipe inspection robot using structured light to measure erosion inside a pipe. Several factors influencing the speed are considered and an implementation based on a field programmable gate array (FPGA) is presented. This is a low power approach that would allow the processing of the high resolution images to be done in real time on the robot, with high processing speeds and rapid data reduction ideal for wireless transmission.
