Collision Tolerant Gimbal Drone for Sewage Treatment and Industrial Pipelines
Keywords:UAV, Safety, FDM
This report presents the design and development of a lightweight mechanical gimbal ring system enclosed within a protective cage for unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs), commonly known as drones. The objective of this project was to create a drone that can be safely operated by unskilled individuals without causing damage to the drone itself. The mechanical gimbal ring system ensures stability during flight while maintaining independent movement between the drone and the protective cage. By implementing this innovative design, the drone can be effectively used for industrial inspection in environments such as large pipelines and Indian sewage tunnels, reducing the risk to human safety by minimizing the need for human presence in hazardous locations. The components were carefully selected and calibrated, and the gimbal rings and cage were fabricated using Fused Deposition Modeling (FDM) technology.
