Sky Cleaner 3: a real pneumatic climbing robot for glass-wall cleaning

  title={Sky Cleaner 3: a real pneumatic climbing robot for glass-wall cleaning},
  author={Houxiang Zhang and Jianwei Zhang and Guanghua Zong and Wei Wang and Rong Liu},
  journal={IEEE Robotics & Automation Magazine},
There are large numbers of high-rise buildings with glass curtain walls that require constant cleaning and is carried out using permanent gondola systems. This is a laborious and dangerous work in midair. Due to a lack of uniform building structure, wall cleaning and maintenance of high-rise buildings is becoming one of the most appropriate fields for robotization. The development of walking and climbing offers a novel alternative solution to glass-wall cleaning. Application of a type of… CONTINUE READING
