Disney’s research arm has been quietly churning out impressive, occasionally unnerving experiments for some time now, and its latest is a particularly inspired bit of engineering: a small, four-wheeled robot with the uncanny ability to climb up walls.
迪士尼研发部门经常是悄无声息地拿出让人震惊的黑科技,而这个低调部门最近的成果是一款能够爬墙的小型四轮机器人。

jiqirentv: robot car can drive up walls

The robot, VertiGo, was created through a partnership between Disney Research Zurich and the university ETH Zurich. By rolling up to a wall and adjusting two propellors attached to it, the robot can climb up and continue moving at a surprisingly brisk pace.
这款名为VertiGo的机器人由苏黎世迪士尼研究中心与苏黎世联邦理工学院联合开发。通过两个推进器提供垂直升力,这款机器人能够以很快的速度爬墙。

“By transitioning from the ground to a wall and back again, VertiGo extends the ability of robots to travel through urban and indoor environments,” the researchers write about the project. “The robot is able to move on a wall quickly and with agility.”
项目研究人员表示:“通过从地面过渡至墙面,再返回地面,VertiGo拓展了机器人在城市和室内环境中的活动能力。这款机器人能在墙面上敏捷地行动。”

It’s not clear exactly what Disney might want the concept for, but it’s a neat enough trick that it’s not hard to see it showing up in some kind of consumer product down the road.
目前尚不清楚,迪士尼将把这一概念用于什么场景。不过,未来迪士尼很可能会在某些类型的消费类产品中应用这项技术。
