Abstract: Simulation frameworks are wide-spread in the range of robotics to test algorithms and analyze system behavior beforehand – which tremendously reduces effort and time needed for conducting experiments on the real machines. This paper addresses a component based framework for simulating a wall-climbing robot that uses negative pressure adhesion in combination with an omnidirectional drive system. Key aspect is the adhesion system which interacts with the environmental features such as surface characteristics (e. g. roughness) or defects. An elaborate thermodynamic model provides the basis for a realistic simulation of the airflow between the virtual environment and the vacuum chambers of the robot. These features facilitate the validation of closed-loop controllers and control algorithms offline and in realtime.
