Reconfigurable Legged Robot for Structural Inspection with Confined Spaces

This project is motivated by the demands for automation of industrial structure inspection. An autonomous re-configurable robot system is proposed to facilitate the inspection of structures with confined spaces, like airframes or ship hulls. The robot will be able to realize various types of legged locomotion by means of configuration changes. The general objective of this project is to develop a legged robot system that is fully autonomous and adaptable to the structures under operation. We believe that the proposed system will have significant potentials for commercial applications as a lot of industries are calling for an autonomous robotic inspection. Therefore, the partner organizations are driving new technology in Canada.
