Abstract
In the last years, several robots for building façade cleaning have been designed and some prototypes have been developed. However, most of these robotics systems are too expensive to be introduced in the market or are only able to cope with very simple completely flat glass façades. Funded by the European Commission, a consortium formed by several European enterprises and research institutions has developed a semi-automatic low cost robotic system that is able to cope with the cleaning tasks of most of the existing large building façades. In this article, after a description of the robotic façade cleaning system we present the innovative control architecture that has been implemented.
