Abstract

Modern robotic systems are increasingly powerful in terms of sensor fusion and mobility. Present technological progress allows advanced robots to cope progressively much better also with complex environments such as those which are frequently found in the maritime industries. An overview of the development of mobile robots (climbing and walking) is presented with examples taken from some research projects carried out by the Industrial Automation Institute of the Spanish Council for Scientific Research.
