Abstract

St Paul Travelers is an insurance company that performs over 35,000 roof inspections per year. The goal of this project was to design and build a robot inspection platform in order to limit risk to the human inspector and lower inspection time. The team developed an all-wheel drive robot capable of traversing a variety of roof geometries while visually recording data. The final deliverable also included an ascender system to deliver the robot to the roof. The robot will serve as a platform for future MQPs to further develop sensor systems for roof inspection.
