After setting my new 2017 group of FIRST LEGO Leage (FLL) Students the “Bio-mimicry Wall Climbing Task” from the 2016 Animal Allies Challenge, I thought I should prove that it is possible to achieve. The Bio-mimicry Wall Climbing Task requires having the Robot lift its self up upon a wall with no part of the Robot touching the Challenge Mat. Easier than it sounds…

This task proved to be rather difficult to achieve as the Lifting Mechanism has to be able to lift and support around 1 kilogram (1 lb) of Robot. I found my students where struggling with engineering of a capable device, so following the class I set myself the task of building a working attachment to fit my Mark II, FLL Robot. After a couple of hours of trial and error, I had a working attachment which was able to lift the 1.2Kg Robot completely off the ground, suspended on the Bio-mimicry Wall using a LEGO Linear Actuator Assembly.

    I would not have thought that the EV3 Medium Motor had enough torque to lift a 1kg robot, but your design is very robust!  Thanks for sharing it.
