High-rise tasks such as cleaning, painting, inspection, and maintenance on walls of large buildings or other structures require robots with climbing and manipulating skills. Motivated by these potential applications and inspired by the climbing motion of inchworms, we have developed a biped wall-climbing robot-W-Climbot. Built with a modular approach, the robot consists of five joint modules connected in series and two suction modules mounted at the two ends. With this configuration and biped… CONTINUE READING
