A little robot called ROCR. 'rocker')
Can move like a human climber or ape rocking in a tree.
"While this robot can eventually be used for inspection, maintenance, and monitoring, this can be the biggest drawback --
"Potential terms are a teaching tool or a very cool toy," says robot developer William Provancher . ".
Provancher and his colleagues wrote that most climbing robots "are meant to carry out maintenance or inspection in environments such as buildings, bridges or dams, storage tanks, nuclear facilities or reconnaissance within buildings.
"While previous climbing robots focused on issues such as speed, sticking to walls, deciding how and where to move, ROCR was the first robot to focus on efficient climbing," Provancher.
Motor driving robot tail and curved beam-
Like a stabilizer mounted on a robot.
There are two small, steel, hook on the upper body --
Just like the claws when robots climb up the walls of the carpet.
Without a stabilizer, the claws of the ROCR tend to move away from the wall when climbing it.
"ROCR grabs the wall with one hand at a time, swings its tail, causes the center of gravity to move, raises the free hand, and then grabs the climbing surface, the study says.
It added: "The hand exchanges grip duties and ROCR swings its tail in the opposite direction . ".
"It imitates a gibbon swinging on a tree and a pendulum of Grandfather's Clock, both of which are very effective," said Provancher . ".
Research said: "The core innovation of ROCR --its energy-
