    Abstract

    This Project is on the design, construction, and testing of a robot to climb trees and to detect Asian Longhorn Beetle infestation. The primary goal was to design and build a robot that could successfully climb a tree. After researching existing climbing robot designs, a robot prototype was built using concepts from the existing designs. The prototype was then tested to determine the effectiveness of the design. The prototype proved to be partially successful, being capable of gripping a tree and staying on, but could not move. Though not entirely successful, the project identified many important aspects in a tree climbing robot's design.
