The paper describes the methodology applied to the design of a climbing robot that has been conceived and studied to solve the real task of cleaning the wall surfaces of hospital and clinic nursing home environments. The robot is able to spray different cleaning and disinfecting liquids for preventing infections. This robot is light and simple and it is thought to work in a team in order to guarantee a fast and coordinated cleaning system to all the room walls. It has been conceived, and designed taking into account critical issues in geometric modelling and functional requirements involving multiple engineering disciplines which concur to optimize the robot characteristics while reducing the development time.

Abstract

The paper describes the methodology applied to the design of a climbing robot that has been conceived and studied to solve the real task of cleaning the wall surfaces of hospital and clinic nursing home environments. The robot is able to spray different cleaning and disinfecting liquids for preventing infections. This robot is light and simple and it is thought to work in a team in order to guarantee a fast and coordinated cleaning system to all the room walls. It has been conceived, and designed taking into account critical issues in geometric modelling and functional requirements involving multiple engineering disciplines which concur to optimize the robot characteristics while reducing the development time.
