The PIGWaves system will comprise of a robot that will be capable of working in pipelines that carry liquids, and particularly oil. The PIGWaves robot will float down the pipeline in a non-inspecting mode. Every 50m it will expand a flexible probe collar to lock itself to the circumference of the pipe.

DRAXIS supervises and assists at:
- the specification of system requirements and target performance
- the determination of environmental parameters in which the pipeline robots will be expected to operate in oil
- the assessment of the control system developed that integrates the PIGWaves system
- the validation of the results, obtained by the laboratory and the field trials
