Steel Climbing Robot for Steel Bridge Inspection
Background One of the most important causes of deterioration of steel bridges is corrosion, which causes section loss or cracks in the steel. For some critical components of a steel bridge, it could cause the collapse of the whole bridge. To prevent this, the most common approach to steel bridge inspection is visual inspection by inspectors with inspection...

Methods for Fast and Reversible Dry Adhesion Tuning Between Composite Structures and Substrate Fields
Background: How do geckoes and even Spiderman climb up walls? They use a process call dry adhesion. This process is not only useful for climbing walls but also has potential applications in robotics such as pick-and-release robotic manipulators and climbing robots. Further, it is also useful in manufacturing for transfer printing, as well as temporary...
