We expose the application area of building and controlling autonomous service robots for performing inspection tasks in sewerage systems that are inaccessible for humans. The problem is explained, the physical and legal boundary conditions for operating sewer robots are described, the state of current sewer inspection technology is sketched, and the need for using advanced technology in this area motivated. Based on that, we identify Al research and technology topics that are crucial for sewer robotics and give pointers to related work including work that we have been doing since the last four years.
