Abstract

A new blimp robot is proposed to make a rise or downward movement easy, where four partial envelopes are arranged, centering on a gondola, and four propellers are attached around the gondola. After pointing out the structural problem of a conventional X4 blimp robot, the design and manufacture of a new type body to be developed is described in detail. In order to examine the usefulness of the structure of the blimp robot developed, some experiments are conducted to visually check a translational motion, pitch motion and yaw motion in open-loop control.
