Design and Fabrication of Vertically Wall Climbing Glass Cleaning Robot


Abstract: A wall climbing robot is a robot with the capability of climbing vertical surfaces. This paper describes the design and fabrication of a quadruped climbing robot. We are required to design and create a wall climbing robot which uses suction as a means of sticking to the wall. The robot will be controlled using Basic Stamp and the movement of its legs will generated by two servo motors. Each servo motor will control legs which are located on the left and right side of the robot. The leg rotations mimic stepping motions through the use of a slider and crank. The suction force will be supplied by two vacuum pumps that will turn on intermittently. The main body of the robot will carry all the components except for the compressor thus making it mobile. Currently the robot is only designed for linear movement. However plans to incorporate maneuverability and other functions can be implemented after the first stage of the development achieves success. created to assist or replace humans in various dangerous and difficult tasks. Robots have been used in construction, manufacturing, security and etc. This is because they are able to adapt to different environments and situations. They have conquered nearly all environments that humans have put them through. Climbing robots can be used on artificial surfaces like a wall, or on natural surfaces like trees or cave walls. They are desirable for several applications such as search and rescue. This phenomena is still a challenge to be achieved using robotic devices. Climbing robots should have some practical utility to deal with different surfaces and geometries. This can be achieved by the use of special purpose attachment devices such as magnets or suction. At the same time, the machines need to be power autonomous, to avoid the hazard and the limitations of a tether. Climbing robots need unprecedented reliability. -Wall climbing robot: Mechanical design and implementation
