Abstract

Observing wildlife, monitoring forest health, conducting research, and detecting invasive species and infections are just a few of the crucial tasks that currently require humans to climb trees. Putting people into trees is an expensive and potentially dangerous task. The CHAMP (Compliant Hook Arboreal Mobility Platform) is a tree climbing robot that carries and controls job-specific payloads to improve the safety and efficiency of many arboreal tasks.
