We design our robot to adapt to the glass surface environment of HKUST rooftop, which does not contain a lot of visual clues or walls. Our algorithm is designed for the task of glass cleaning, but it can also be used for other purposes such as navigation, which utilizes positioning and mapping on similarly restrictive environment; for example drones/cleaners inside an office building.

Hi students, as you described your robot is able move in a tilted surface up to 90 degree. Can you really do this safely?

We are starting to test implementation of the vacuum suction motor to see how well the robot can hold onto surfaces. For safety, we may consider adding safety tethers as used by existing wall cleaning robots, along with utilizing sensor information to prevent the robot from falling off edges. Also, for the purpose of this project which only deals with the HKUST atrium rooftop, the largest tilt angle should be around 45 degrees, although in theory our control algorithm would work even on higher tilt angles.
