A pioneering solution to address the challenge of neglected vertical surfaces of buildings in Taiwan. By integrating laser cleaning technology into a drone and tricycle design, we aim to provide an efficient and cost-effective way to enhance the city's visual appeal and promote the well-being and productivity of its citizens. Our goal is to create a sustainable and prosperous urban environment.
Cleaning up not only the horizontal but the vertical surfaces of a city.
The surfaces of buildings and public facilities makes up quite a large sum of the appearance of a city. These surfaces, which are often overlooked in terms of cleaning and maintenance, accumulate dust and debris, leading to unsightly marks that detract from the city's visual appeal. This not only impacts the well-being of its citizens but also has a negative effect on productivity levels. Our goal is to address this challenge by providing an efficient, cost-effective, and sustainable solution to clean these surfaces and enhance the overall appearance and prosperity of the city.
Current cleaning processes involves immense manual labor and are all time consuming.
