Sentry / Climbing robot


Sentry is a climbing robot that can assist agents to scout the actions of enemies in skyscrapers. In cities, criminal bases can be set up in tall buildings, so agents may need a device to keep an eye on them. To be specific, the device needs to be flexible in vertical space and able to work for a long time.

Sentry can move on a vertical wall by the suction cups in 5 cm/s. With the solar panels, it can be charged while it is in a mission. The holder on its back can be fitted with up to 2 kg devices such as detectaphones, signal shields, telephoto cameras for different types of missions. Moreover, it can also carry and charge a mini drone.
