Vertigo: A Wall-Climbing Robot

You might freak out and might be a little alarmed on this little wall-climbing robot. That’s if you used to watch a lot of movies about apocalypse. This is Vertigo. A wall-climbing robot that is capable of transitioning from the ground to the wall, created in collaboration between Disney Research Zurich and ETH. This robot has two tiltable propellers that provide thrust onto the wall, and four wheels. One pair of wheels is steerable, and each propeller has two degrees of freedom for adjusting the direction of thrust. By transitioning from the ground to a wall and back again, VertiGo extends the ability of robots to travel through urban and indoor environment. Enough of the explanations, watch this clip to see this robot in action.
