We constructed more of a “climber chassis” over the past few days to be able to simulate the climber with both arms.
The first test of the climber chassis did work well. We didn’t do a full continuous climb but if you want to watch multiple videos they are all in this gallery. The video below is the prototype moving from the high bar to the traversal mostly by itself.
This prototype is still only powered by a single motor and we will be adding bars across the arms to help synchronize their motion. We will also be adding weight to the chassis to see how it changes the climber’s behavior.
