VertiGo is a wall-climbing robot that is capable of transitioning from the ground to the wall. The robot was created through a partnership between Disney Research Zurich and the university ETH Zurich.
VertiGo – A Wall Climbing Robot Including Ground-Wall Transition!
The robot has two tiltable propellers that provide thrust onto the wall. By rolling up to a wall and adjusting the two propellers attached to it, the robot can climb up and continue moving at a surprisingly brisk pace. The choice of two propellers rather than one enables a floor-to-wall transition.
