Short summary
A rope-climbing robot (RCR) can reciprocate on a rope. To address poor load capacity and adaptability, this study designs a dual-rope crawler type RCR for use as a new type of transportation equipment in hilly, mountainous, and plateau areas. The crawler rope-climbing mechanism is a combination of a chain drive and the rope-climbing foot. With overhead rope parabolic theory to kinematically analyze the RCR system, the robot motion trajectory model and tilt angle equation are established.
