Glass Wall Climbing and Clean-up Automaton

Authors(4) :-Suryakant Rathod, Ankur Rai, Chandan Kumar, Raj Kumar have

The purpose of this study is to develop the wall rising automaton for cleanup one massive windowpane like a show window. It needs the subsequent demands to use the window cleanup automaton for the sensible use: 1) Adhere or stick the automaton to the glass surface with the assistance of suction cup vacuum. 2) Clean the glass surface of the window with facilitate of wiper hooked up to the front panel of the automaton. 3) Once cleanup off wiper & then climb (walk) the automaton as per instruction to the microcontroller. For adhesion of automaton to a surface, we've seen the various variety of adhesion technique like adhesion by magnetic attraction, adhesion by small spine etc. But, here we have a tendency to develop Elecrochuks (Creation of vacuum in a suction cup by using injection syringe operated by D.C.Motor) to get adhesion of automaton. Elecrochuks are just like suction cup during which needed vacuum is formed by actuation a connecting rod from the cylinder like structure mounted on a suction cup. The scale of the model is just about 690 millimeter times 400 millimeter times 160 millimeter and its weight is around less than 3 kilogram.
