In this paper the aim is to develop the efficient wall climbing robot which can move on the
vertical direction as well as ceiling surfaces. Centrifugal impeller is used which generate the low
pressure area for proper adhesion on the vertical wall surfaces possible. No perfect sealing is required
which is the main advantage of this wall climbing robot. Here four wheeled locomotion system is used
which gives proper traction over the vertical wall surfaces. Minimum required adhesion force is
calculated to stick the robot on the vertical surfaces properly. Actual prototype model is made & tested
experimentally on the wall & ceiling surfaces. One of the challenging task is to make the robot's weight
as light as possible with proper adhesion and locomotion system at low cost.
