Abstract [en]

A multi-terrain climbing robot provides more flexibility while doing inspection in scenarios where the environments comprise several types of landscape such as walls, steps, ceiling, and sloped ferromagnetic surfaces. This paper presents the development of a walking and climbing robot named Winspecbot which uses legs with magnetic padded feet to climb on steel pipes and is planned to have a hand gripper to perform inspection tasks. The robot is designed to carry about 1 kg inspection tools while it is climbing. With the use of Wi-Fi communications, the user is able to monitor the operational conditions of the robot when it is working in complex environments.
