Abstract:

In the final reporting period, we have produced several variant wall-climbing robot prototypes for building inspection and window cleaning tasks. We also conducted theoretical research on multi-robot coordination, swarming robotics, and 3D map construction in constrained 3D space involving City-Climber robots. We have developed a 3D simulation software and conducted real experiments to verify the theoretical results. We are negotiating with Hasbro Inc. for licensing the City-Climber technology in toy industry through CUNY technology commercialization office.
