Abstract
The development of robots for service application is growing rapidly due to constraints of the operation efficiency and cost-effective task completion. One among those is the climbing robots, which are developed for the inspection applications of high-rise buildings. Skyscrapers involve the humans for facades cleaning work, which is hazardous and laborious. For such requirements, the robotics are dealt to overcome hazardous situations, possessing high level of adaptability and flexibility. This paper presents novel design of intelligent information based remotely operated negative sliding suction pressure control for climbing robot using low cost NI-myRIO under LabVIEW environment. It also deals with robustness and stability of wall climbing robot with navigation and closed loop control mechanism. NI-myRIO has an inbuilt processor with FPGA, used to acquire and generate signals for processing and controlling of wall climbing robot remotely. The robot is simulated using the graphical user interface under LabVIEW environment. The robot was realized and controlled using handheld Tablet PC.
