The City of Orlando is using robots to map its sewer system. And probably to fight teenage mutant ninja gators.

Orlando Public Works are using special cylindrical bots to climb through and scan roughly 10,000 SF of pipe every day to examine the City’s sanitary sewer system without having to dig anything up or disrupt the public.

City staff is scanning sewer lines to identify clogs, damaged pipelines, and other issues prior to an overflow or a sudden pipe burst.
