Abstract

An autonomous cleaning robot is proposed so as to move between floors in a high-rise building. Presently, many of cleaning robots are not considered to move on places between floors. In human living environments, it is often the case that the cleaning area is three-dimensional space such as a high-rise building. Therefore, the cleaning robots can not clean the area such as stairs. In this paper, a mechanism and a control method are described for the robot climbing down and cleaning stairs. The usefulness of the proposed robot is demonstrated through the simulation.
