Pictor - cleaning & painting robot


Pictor is a concept for a service robot for cleaning and painting surfaces at
risky places like high buildings, towers, nuclear plants and industrial sites.

A cleaning laser prepares the wall before an airless machine paints the sur-
face absolutely clean without any atomized spray. It is also possible to paint
oversize pictures on surfaces for advertising or art.

The robot is able to climb on walls because of its innovative feet which are
coated with a nano surface. The orientation on the wall takes placevia laser
scanner, colour sensor and a camera. The system features a fuel cell for
energy and a colour tank.

The project was a teamwork together with Florian Behm.
