Title:
AUTONOMOUS-TRAVEL CLEANING ROBOT
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2014/103290
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
Provided is an autonomous-travel cleaning robot with which cleaning can be performed continuously, even in large spaces, without increasing the size thereof. This robot, which autonomously travels upon a structure (SP) provided with a flat surface disposed outdoors, and cleans a target flat surface (SF) of the structure (SP), is provided with: a robot main body (2) having, provided thereto, a movement means for implementing autonomous travel; and cleaning units (10) provided to side surfaces of the robot main body (2). The cleaning units (10) are each provided with: a rotatable brush (12) comprising a shaft part (12a), and brush parts (12b) provided to the shaft part (12a); and an air-current forming cover (15) which, during cleaning of the flat surface, is provided covering a portion of the brush (12), said portion being located at a side of the robot main body (2) and at a side opposite to the flat surface. The provision of a dust-collection portion to the robot main body (2) is not required, and thus increasing the size of the robot main body (2) is unnecessary. Furthermore, dust suction is not required, and thus power consumption can be reduced, thereby enabling cleaning of extremely large places to be performed continuously.
