Potential Robotic Window Cleaners

A robot can’t climb a wall...or can it? The Yume Robo trio displayed their skills at climbing scaffolding at the Shanghai Expo. They have been climbing up and down a 15 meter wall every 20 minutes for the last 184 days.


The robots were created in Osaka by 15 small and midsized companies. They are about 1.4 meters tall and weigh 30 kg. They climb quite slow and cannot work without a safety rope. Practical applications for the robots could include being window cleaners for skyscapers.
