Part of the Springer Tracts in Advanced Robotics book series (STAR, volume 78)


Based on the limitation of the existing tree-climbing robots, one of the motivations of the work presented in this book is to develop a novel type of tree-climbing robot that can assist or replace humans in performing tasks on trees. The robot should be applicable to various pursuits such as harvesting, tree maintenance and observation of arboreal animals.
