Abstract

There are a large number of high-rise buildings equipped with facades (curtain-walls) in modern cities. These facades must be periodically maintained with manual procedures that are costly and risky. For this reason, the interest in developing and employing service robots for the building maintenance has been increased. Automation and robotics technologies allow safe and environmentally friendly facade cleaning, monitoring, and painting, which also reduce the cost of these tasks. These systems resolve the current safely problems associated with difficult and dangerous access, contributing to a zero injury and fatality working performance. This paper deals with developing a Built-in Facade Maintenance Robot System (BMR) with Docking Station based on vertical climbing mechanism and daughter robot for actual maintenance works.
