Climbing robots have been developed and are in use presently. But most of them have been designed and developed for climbing man-made structures such as vertical walls, structural frames and glass windows. Few climbing robots have been designed, for climbing natural structures such as trees, especially coconut trees for harvesting coconuts in specific. This paper proposes the design and development of a robot prototype A.R.C.H-1, with a novel idea of climbing, maneuvering and fastening mechanism, that actually climbs effectively and efficiently a pole, which simulates a coconut tree by its varying diameter and rough uneven surface. This robot operates by the reception of command from operator on the ground and he can view and select the coconuts to be harvested, with the support of the display on his remote or mobile device.
