Design of A Window Cleaning Device and Its Operating Mechanism

Kyoon-Tai Kim and Young-Hun Jun
Abstract— Recently, demand has been increasing for a cleaning device that can be used for specific window(s) on a specific floor. However, the conventional cleaning devices that have been developed are for cleaning the entire façade, making them inappropriate to meet the demand for partial cleaning. In addition, the different cleaning target means that the conventional devices cannot be used, as their forms and operating mechanism present a limitation. The purpose of this study is to develop a design of cleaning device and its operating mechanism in order to clean specific windows occasionally. In this study, two methods are derived, and a comparative analysis of the two was performed. The window-height device is evaluated to have more advantages in cleaning windows individually.

Index Terms— Construction automation, window cleaning, cleaning robot, maintenance, cleaning mechanism.
