The aim of the paper is to design of mechanical and electronic parts of mobile inspection robot, which is designed for car undercarriage inspection tasks purposes. At first, mathematical model of robot motion on inclined plane is introduced, by which the actuators can be designed. Subsequently, driving and powered axle are designed with their particular parts. In the next section, design of particular electronic parts is introduced. In the conclusion the final version robot is shown.
