SIRO: the silo surface cleaning robot concept
IEEE International Conference on Mechatronics and Automation (ICMA), August 4-7, 2013, Takamatsu, Japan.
Abstract: A concept of a suspended robot for surface clean ing in silos is presented in this paper. The main requirements and limitations resulting from the specific operational condi- tions are discussed. Due to the large dimension of the silo as a confined space, specific kinematics of the robot manipulator is proposed. The major problems in its design are highlighted and an approach to resolve them is proposed. The suggested concept is a reasonable compromise between the basic contradicting factors in the design: small entrance and large surface of the confined space, suspension and stabilization of the robot.
