Abstract
Temporary surveillance with an easily deployable surveillance unit can give a tactical advantage for police in situations when big crowds suddenly gather. It can also be used by fire department during fires or in the private security sector on construction sites and other such temporary areas requiring surveillance. This report describes the process of developing the climbing system for such a surveillance unit. Firstly a pre-study is made to determine what is required of the climbing system. Poles are studied online and by walking around in different cities. Also researched in the pre-study is possible competition. Following the pre-study is research on possible customer needs. Concept generation follows where concepts compete against... (More)
Temporary surveillance with an easily deployable surveillance unit can give a tactical advantage for police in situations when big crowds suddenly gather. It can also be used by fire department during fires or in the private security sector on construction sites and other such temporary areas requiring surveillance. This report describes the process of developing the climbing system for such a surveillance unit. Firstly a pre-study is made to determine what is required of the climbing system. Poles are studied online and by walking around in different cities. Also researched in the pre-study is possible competition. Following the pre-study is research on possible customer needs. Concept generation follows where concepts compete against each other in concept screening and concept scoring based on the initial research. The final winner is developed to a working prototype. The prototype uses belts to tighten itself to a pole in two different places. By holding the pole with one belt the other belt can be lifted which allows the robot to climb. The final prototype works but needs improvements before it is market ready. (Less)
Popular Abstract
Temporary surveillance with an easily deployable camera can give a tactical advantage for police in riots or similar situations when big crowds suddenly gather, or for the fire department when a fire breaks out. This is a brief description of the development for a prototype pole climbing unit where a camera in a later product can be attached.
