The objective of DeWaLoP Robot System is to redevelop the pipes of over 100 years old fresh water supply systems of Vienna (3000 km length) and Bratislava (2800 km). ACIN TUW is in charge to build a robot that crawls into water canals of about 1 meter in diameter and that is able to apply material to repair the pipes.
