Design and Fabrication of Wall and Roof Climbing Robot


The march towards next generation energy and transportation services brings us to the innovative key idea and the concept of wall climbing robot. Hitherto many walls climbing applications like building wall inspections, surveillance, defect detection, etc. are limited by human capabilities and safety. To eliminate human factor involved and to coalesce engineering and convenience to apply the technology to optimize human resource utilization. With greener technologies improving efficiency, it has created a need for better maintenance services and enhanced energy saving solutions. To optimize maintenance and space utilization, motion along the vertical surfaces is a viable solution. The system will be a product capable of climbing vertical and near vertical surfaces, a capability that can be utilized in surface inspection, surveillance, maintenance and other complex maneuvers.

We devleloped,design and manufactured vacuum technology-based wall roof traversing robot. It has self-weight of 3.8kg and payload capacity of 1.5kg. The robot can be used for surveillance, defect detection in metallic structures, cleaning of vertical facades etc. and controlled by PS2 remote controller.
