Abstract:-
In recent decades, robotic technology has emerged. The objective of the glass purification robot is to ascend to the vertical surface of the glass and to clean its surfaces. The effective fixation and dissociation of the glass surface can achieve this goal. The dangerous task such as cleaning glass surfaces of high-rise buildings, extinction of fire and inspection of high structures can take place by people. This robot may also be utilized for high building measurements. The objective of this project is to create a robot that can move on vertical glass surfaces and clean up the clean and dirty glass surfaces. In this work, the difficulty is to make the robot's weight and the correct adhesion and automation with reasonable costs as low as feasible. The proposed cleaning robot can be controlled easily by a single staff and is portable.
