Cy-mag3De: magnetic climbing inspection robot

Cy-Mag3De is a magnetic climbing inspection robot with advanced mobility. It is based on an innovative, award-winning and patented magnetic design. Its mobility is further enhanced thanks to a novel active tail. The robot has a cylindrical shape of 80 mm in diameter and 233 mm in length and a weight of 1.6 kg. It is energy autonomous with distributed batteries, has a camera and sends wireless video feed-back to the remote user interface. The robot is very integrated, robust and allows excellent mobility and visual inspection in complex ferromagnetic environment. It opens new avenue for climbing magnetic inspection robots.
