The central air conditioning system is becoming the main part of the modern building. However, the regular cleaning and pipeline inspection rely on human is not only labor-intensive but also less effective. This paper presents the development of an air conditional route wireless inspection robot. The movement and speed of the wireless inspection robot can be controlled remotely by using a joystick. This robot also can be used to detect a leaking hole based on heat detection and clean the air conditioning route. The operator can monitor the robot's inspection by using video that are captured through a wireless camera on the surface of the robot. The robot is controlled using PIC16F877A and Visual Basic 6.0 programs are created to interface with computer. This user friendly wireless inspection robot is expected to overcome the inspecting and cleaning the air conditional routes problem in the fastest and easiest way.
