Crawler / Cleaning Robot


CRAWLER is a cleaning robot. When crawling on the ground, it can clean the ground, steps and stairs by contacting the elastic cleaning material with the ground under certain pressure and crawling on the ground like caterpillars.
It consists of control hub, movable skeleton, elastic cleaning material and contact parts for support.
By changing the pressure between the supporting contact surface and the ground to change the magnitude of the friction force in the two directions, the morphological action of the forward crawl can be realized.
