Intelligent Instrumentation


Cleaning Windows in multi-level building comes with its costs: Lives, insurance, etc. What if we had a robot who could replace the humans who clean the windows? They are tethered as usual. But it is a lot safer, less costly to clean the windows.


Clean the windows from inside and outside in highrise buildings and factories

Partial Specifications

1) Does not have to work on battery as it could use one of the wires as its line of electricity.
2) Should not weight more than 60 KG: i.e., a normal human weight. Due to the force being applied to windows, the robot may need weight to stabilize itself. But it should be on creative techniques that the stability is achieved.
3) Will have camera and robotic arms to achieve the tasks.
4) Should be possible to control remotely.

Suggested Approach

1) Reading about how to design robots and various codes and platforms,
2) Assembling the parts,
3) Incorporating the codes and testing.

Group Responsibilities

This project is relatively huge in respect to various components that it is involved in. 1) Design 2) Coding 3) Deploying and testing Group needs to provide helping hands in different segments so that the project moves forward.
