Abstract

Electroadhesion technique being employed in variety of fields of science and technology is considered as a clamping technique for wall climbing robots. The focus of this research is to present a cost effective and light weight unipolar electroadhesion pad technology for wall climbing robots (WCR) capable of lifting a reasonable weight vertically. The literature demonstrates that most of the research related electroadhesion has been performed on bipolar electrode pads. The research presented in this paper indicates that unipolar electroadhesion pad showed favourable attachment on melamine and wood substrates giving encouragement for the realisation of unipolar WCR. Design considerations along with the attachment of anti-peeling tail are also considered for the realization of WCR. The controlling mechanism for unipolar wall climbing robot was not complex. In conculsion, unipolar electroadhesion pad of copper and aluminium is a feasible technique to develop a cost effective and light weight unipolar wall climbing robot.
