文章摘要: To improve reliability and security of the aircraft fuel tank inspection and decrease labor intensity of maintenance personnel, a inspection robot is developed. It can enter the fuel tank and inspect defects to replace maintenance workers. Wheel-tracked mobile mechanism is proposed to adapt to the particular structure of aircraft fuel tank with ribs and stringers, which can be used to implement switching motion mode. By means of remote control and wireless video transmission, control system structure is constructed so that the worker can operate the robot and observe the scenario of fuel tank conveniently in the control station. Experimental results show that the performance of the robot is stable and reliable, and the design is reasonable and feasible.
