PIRO Researchers Develop Window Cleaning Robot

Scientists at the Pohang Institute of Intelligent Robotics (PIRO) in South Korea have created Windoro a window cleaning robot that embraces two distinct modules that can meticulously clean the window by spraying the cleaning solution and then rubbing it away with the help of spinning pads.

Windoro Robot

Windoro robot utilizes neodymium magnets for hauling the two modules which are located on the opposite sides of the window, thereby enabling the robot to remain vertical. The scientists preferred magnets to vacuum power since they had observed that vacuum is not safe and consistent and the robot needed the vacuum at all times for maintaining its position.

The robot can maintain its vertical position on a 10 to 25mm measuring window, even in the absence of power. During the cleaning operation, it maintains its track by utilizing various sensors for altitude determination, collision recognition and distance measurement.

The Windoro is likely to be released in the retail market by next year, benefiting the tall buildings.
