Billingsley, John (2007) Climbing up the wall. In: 10th International Conference on Climbing and Walking Robots and the Supporting Technologies for Mobile Machines: CLAWAR 2007, 16-18 July 2007, Singapore.
Reminiscences cover over two decades of legged robot research. From Robug I, a sixlegged walker that was overweight, the story leads through a succession of wall-climbers both simple and elaborate, some of which have found commercial applications in the nuclear industry.
