Meet MARVEL, the quadrupedal robot that can climb walls and ceilings

Posted by in category: robotics/AI

Magnetized feet enable it to climb at speeds of up to 0.7 meters per second (m/s).

Investigating industrial sites is no easy task. It involves work at high altitudes and confined spaces, like steel bridges or shipyard welding platforms, all of which could be dangerous to human workers.

Named MARVEL, short for Magnetically Adhesive Robot for Versatile and Expeditious Locomotion, the 17.
