Paper presented at the 2015 18th International Conference on Computer and Information Technology, ICCIT 2015, 368-372. doi:10.1109/ICCITechn.2015.7488098
The basis of this project is to create an electrical pole climbing robot which can be used to reduce the risk of an electrician to connect the distribution lines for supplying purposes. Pole climbing robot, nowadays, is a very common and interesting idea, which mainly works by connecting the distribution lines according to the directions given to it. In this modern era robots are being developed for various purposes to accomplish many tasks which seem to be too complex and life endangering for humans. Benefits of using robots have been immense in terms of risk-free, speed and efficiency of doing required tasks compared to that of humans. The main objective of this work is to to save human lives as numbers of people are died from electrical injuries almost every year in Bangladesh. Considering on that issue, a pole climbing robot has been designed, built and simulated. However, further modifications of this work might be able to perform the wiring and repairing tasks instead of an electrician. The developed robot works on the principle of linear motor, which is partially autonomous. With the installation of this project, risk of human injuries and death can be minimized while working in the distribution lines which is the main consideration of this paper.
