Summary This paper studies the prototype development of the vibro-impact capsule system aiming for autonomous mobile sensing for pipeline inspection. Self-propelled progression of the system is obtained by employing a vibro-impact oscillator encapsuled in the capsule without the requirement of any external mechanisms, such as wheels, arms, or legs. A dummy capsule prototype is designed, and the best geometric parameters, capsule and cap arc lengths, for minimizing fluid resistance forces are obtained through two-dimensional and three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics analyses, which are confirmed by wind tunnel tests. In order to verify the concept of self-propulsion, both original and optimized capsule prototypes are tested in a fluid pipe. Experimental results are compared with computational fluid dynamics simulations to confirm the efficacy of the vibro-impact self-propelled driving.
