New concept of in-water surface cleaning robot
17th International Conference on Climbing and Walking Robots (CLAWAR).
Abstract: This paper introduces a study of a concept of exible crawling mechanism to design an industrial underwater cleaning robot, which is evaluated from the viewpoint of the capability to work underwater, scanning the desired surface, and bearing the reactions. This can be used as a robotic application in under- water surface cleaning and maintenance. In this study we focused on realizing the adhesion on the surface in stationary and in motion, bearing reactions, enabling the needed locomotion types for scanning, and achieving the stability in dirent situations on the surface.
