Spider Drone


Cleaning the outside walls of high-rise buildings manually is a high-risk work. Cleaners often use simple tools, and their personal security cannot be guaranteed, with very low work efficiency. Instead, the Spider Drone can accomplish these difficult cleaning tasks, with high efficiency and low usage of water. Spider Drones can hover or slide in any position in the air, thus managing different wall surfaces. It engages a spray cleaning agent and wipes the glass exterior at the same time, tilting at a certain angle. This saves a lot of cleaning time, and guarantees high cleaning efficiency.

An efficient cleaning agent for the glass exterior.
I never thought that my entry would be selected by the jury. It`s such a great honor to receive this award. I`m very grateful for the help from my teachers and friends. Design is magic, and I will work harder to master it.
