Window cleaning is a dangerous and repetitive job. Robots LOVE dangerous and repetitive jobs!
Buildings keep getting higher while the air keeps getting dirtier. That means a lot of dirty windows that require frequent cleaning. Window cleaning robots have been around for a while now, but they are usually only being used in private homes, and they are only required to clean a small number of windows. But what do you do when you have a multi-story skyscraper with thousands of windows?
Skyline robotics might have the solution with "Ozmo," a much bigger and more capable window cleaning robot designed to clean big buildings with lots of windows. To locate the windows, the robot combines LiDAR sensors and machine vision. It then cleans the window surface using a commercial, industrial robot arm with force feedback.
The same window cleaning hoist infrastructure that is present on the roof of every building is utilized throughout the whole window cleaning structure. That means Ozmo can be used to clean the windows of any existing skyscraper.
The concept frees people from the perils of working on the outside of towering skyscrapers, allowing the window cleaning team to operate and supervise Ozmo's progress from a more secure place.
