Abstract: With the advent of construction technologies, there has been a rise in the number of tall buildings. At such heights, it is dangerous and difficult for human life to reach. So, the design and control of the movement of a wall climbing swarm robot which uses adhesion force which enables it to climb multiple robots at same time on vertical surface with the swarm intelligence in order to reach high place. The design and control of robot is such that it can be operated for any place like vertical and horizontal. A wireless communication link is used with swarm technology that perform the numbers of multiple robots which works together to complete task With simultaneous communication between two robots, it tends to ease the work load and improves the time used in rescue or surveillance operations. The three major advantages of Robotic approach are that it is scalable, flexible and robust.
