Cleaner Bot

About

Households of today are becoming smarter and more automated. Home automation delivers convenience and creates more time for people. Domestic robots are entering the homes and people’s daily lives, but it is yet a relatively new and immature market. A prototype implementation of a small wheeled robot which is used to clean floors automatically without interference of human beings. This robot has the ability to drive itself around and sweep the floor without crashing into walls or any other object which come in the path of it. It can also detect heights which gives it the ability to not fall down the stairs.

Objectives

Many robotic cleaners are available on the market which cleans the floor but few of them support wet cleaning. The purpose of this project is to design and implement a robot to autonomously clean the floor without human interference. Other than that, by making this robot we will be able to:

  • Reduce labor cost
  • Easily clean the floor
  • Reduce human workforce
  • Interconnect devices with each other known as Machine to Machine (M2M)

Future Work

  • Bigger version of current system with advanced functionalities such as extinguishing fire
  • Automatic water collection
  • Accurate obstacle avoidance
  • Self-charging capability
