Abstract: Experimental investigation into the surface potential and electric field visualization of an electroadhesion system is presented for understanding the dynamic electroadhesion phenomenon. The indirect experimental approach has been based on measuring surface potentials on the surface of an electroadhesive pad by an electrostatic voltmeter. The direct approach has been based on charging and discharging the electroadhesive pad in a viscous oil mixed with lightweight particles. The visualization of the dynamic field distribution of electroadhesive pads can be a useful method to understand the dynamic electroadhesion phenomenon. In addition, indication of different field distributions of different pad geometries can be obtained through the method demonstrated here. Furthermore, the method is useful for instructors or lecturers to showcase or teach the dynamic electroadhesion phenomenon.
