Traveling-Wave-Type Wall-Climbing Robot For Airplane Surface Inspection

Robots are expected to substitute for humans for work performed in locations at a height, such as the inspection of an airplane surface. The authors propose a traveling-wave-type wall-climbing robot simulating a snail movement. To this end, in this study, the negative pressure adsorption method was...

Summary: Robots are expected to substitute for humans for work performed in locations at a height, such as the inspection of an airplane surface. The authors propose a traveling-wave-type wall-climbing robot simulating a snail movement. To this end, in this study, the negative pressure adsorption method was employed to develop a wall-climbing robot that could move on curved surfaces for high-altitude work.
