Abstract [en]

In this article, the potential of utilizing an Electric Ducted Fan (EDF) as an adhesion actuator is investigated in detail, where an experimental setup is implemented for evaluating the EDF's ability to adhere to a test surface through negative pressure generation. Different design variables and modifications to the original EDF structure are tested, while their impact on the adhesion efficiency is experimentally evaluated. The presented investigation acts as a preliminary study to the goal of incorporating the resulting optimized negative pressure-based actuation method in a wall-climbing robot for inspection of aircraft fuselages

Abstract [en]

The aim of this article is to present a survey on inspection applications of Pneumatic Wall-Climbing Robots (PWCR). In general, a PWCR utilizes negative pressure as its adhesion method, through mainly suction cups or negative pressure thrust-based mechanisms. Their main advantage being their ability to climb non-ferromagnetic surfaces, such as glass and composite materials, in comparison with climbing robots based on magnetic adhesion methods. A growing application area is the utilization of PWCRs for inspection purposes for accelerating the otherwise time consuming procedures of manual inspection, while offering the important advantage of protecting human workers from hazardous and/or unreachable environments. This article will summarize the key enabling inspection applications of PWCRs in the following areas: a) Construction, b) Industrial Infrastructures, as well as c) Aircraft applications.
