Stair-climbing robot for cleaning treads and risers

This study have been working on cleaning treads and risers by stair-climbing robot.

By using the legs, the robot can go up and down stairs. Futhermore, by using a manipulator with a cleaning sponge attached, the robot can do cleaning not only the floor surface (theads) but also the wall surface (risers) on stairs. In addition, the robot can remove and transport obstacles.
