  • A Novel Design Technique to Develop a Low Cost and Highly Stable Wall Climbing Robot

    In this paper the proposed method aims to develop a low cost and efficient wall climbing robot that can climb on almost all surfaces. To ensure mechanical stability a centrifugal impeller is used and positioned above the robot that helps to generate an isolated low pressure area that makes adhesion to the vertical wall possible. When the impeller works, the sealing used in our robot reshapes to the shape of the contacting surface, maintaining the low pressure area inside which is a main advantage that eliminates the need for a perfect sealing as required by other vacuum powered wall climbing robots. To control the robot we use an ATmega8 micro controller along with RF wireless transceiver module and some discrete components. The experiment results verified the feasibility of the robot and it can make wall to floor and floor to wall transitions.

  • Modelling of a flexible plate using RLS with variable and directional forgetting factor

    The present study considers the application of recursive least squares (RLS) method with variable forgetting factor (VF) and directional forgetting factor (DF) in dynamic modelling of a flexible plate structure. Recursive least squares with fixed forgetting factor is used to update parameter changes suitable for stationary environments. However for dynamic environments, VF is needed to include fast tracking capability. The performance of the algorithm is compared with that of standard RLS using operations based on one-step-ahead prediction. The performance of each algorithm is assessed in terms of mean square of output error and frequency domain response of the model in characterizing the plate system. Correlation tests are also carried out to validate the model. Simulation results show that the new algorithm can outperform the fixed forgetting factor algorithm in parametric modelling of the flexible structure.

  • Novel omnidirectional climbing robot with adjustable magnetic adsorption mechanism

    For inspection of large-scale equipment such as storage tanks and spherical tanks, it usually costs much manpower and material, while automated testing robot can achieve fast and accurate detection. Because detection is dependent on specialized automated equipment, it can greatly enhance inspection technology in large storage tanks that applying the Mecanum Omnidirectional Mobile Robot into automated detection. In this paper, a novel Mecanum omnidirectional climbing robot is developed for tanks inspection. Adjustable magnetic adsorption mechanism is mounted on wheels, it can change the position of the magnet in three degrees of freedom and magnetic sizes, to provide a stable and reliable robot adsorption force and adapt to different curvatures of the tank wall. Due to the special working location of the wall climbing robot, it needs to be compensated by the force and speed. The robot is equipped with a gyroscope sensor that can automatically adjust the position and orientation to ensure the smooth movement. Some experiment was conducted and reported.

  • Optimal attaching and detaching trajectory for bio-inspired climbing robot using dry adhesive

    IBSS_Gecko_6 is a bio-inspired legged robot that can climb on smooth vertical surface. In this paper, we design a new footpad which equipped with polyurethane adhesive. Different from pervious study, we directly apply the adhesive in the footpad and investigate optimal attaching and detaching trajectory for wall climbing. The optimal adhesion force demonstrated that the leg can perform strong attaching force and modest detaching force, which can supply a reliable force for wall climbing. The optimal trajectory can apply in the wall climbing robot in future.

  • Design of climbing robot's structure inspired by papilio memnon caterpillar

    One type of robots that is interesting to develop is climbing robot. In order to create a robot that can move vertically, observation and data gathering on caterpillar's walking movement are needed. FEA simulation was conducted to attain stress distribution pattern of caterpillar's legs. A simulation was conducted to the climbing robot design to get the stress distribution pattern of each of its legs. The observation result showed that the papilio memnon caterpillar needed seven movements in every single step. The mechanism of its walking movement resembled a wave. The climbing robot's structures was designed to be able to move forward, backward, and to turn.

  • Miniature Mobile Robots Down to Micron Scale

    Miniature mobile robots have the unique capability of accessing to small spaces and scales directly. Due to their small size and small scale physics and dynamics, they could be agile and portable, and could be inexpensive and in large numbers if they are mass produced. Different scale miniature robots with various locomotion capabilities are proposed in this study. Network or swarm of these miniature mobile robots would have applications in the fields of mobile sensor networks, environmental monitoring, health-care, inspection and maintenance, space, security, entertainment, and education.

The robot can climb more simply and safely than other methods because it uses a simple mechanism. As the result of the experiments, it is confirmed that the developed robot can move on the wall. This paper gives motivation of this development, the details of the system, the experimental result and conclusions.

  • Development of a telescopic-arm type, climbing support robot

    This paper describes a telescopic-arm type, climbing support robot. Although there are various kinds of wall climbing robots, there is a possibility that they may fall, due to the wall concavity/convexity or insufficient adhesion. To solve this problem, we developed the wall climbing support robot, which uses a telescopic-arm to support the climbing robot. The telescopic are includes a joint with sensors that detect the speed and direction of the climbing robot. The support robot follows and supports the movement of the climbing robot by follow-up control using detected parameters. With the aid of the support robot, the wall climbing robot can climb the wall more reliably and safely. We also provide experimental results which show that the proposed robot can support the climbing robot efficiently.
