AUTOMATICALLY CLEANING OF A GLASS SKYSCRAPER IN STUTTGART, GERMANY WITH SERBOT “GEKKO FAÇADE” ROBOT.
The FESTO Automation Centre in Esslingen, Germany does not just make a statement in architecture (xia magazine “Intelligent Architecture” issue 04-06/16). The building owner also points to the future of automation. The entire building envelope is cleaned automatically: by a robot: the GEKKO Facade, SERBOT AG, Switzerland, which sucks on the glass façade. This eliminates important disadvantages of conventional cleaning: no disturbance of the user by cleaning personnel, no risky working in a gondola at high altitude, no additional protection during the cleaning phase, etc.
The 8500 m2 area is cleaned in one day. The system works completely autonomously. An electronically controlled roof trolley supplies the robot with energy and demineralized water and secures the whole system. First, the robot learns to know the building envelope and works then autonomously without human intervention by achieving a consistently high cleaning performance and significantly increases the work safety. With its 400 m2/h of cleaning performance, it also reduces time and costs considerably. Read more...
