The Go-Robin concept

After a meeting with Kristiansand international school I can say that those kids are really creative and present quite a challenge! But that is just wonderful. So now I took some time to throw all ideas around and like a puzzle tried to put everything back together to make it work.

The key things of my Go-Robin is pretty straightforward: it has to be a bird, quit small, that could work as a vacuum cleaner both on surface and in air. Here we can incorporate add-ons principle and make one section for the ground tasks one for in air tasks. The bird itself is going to work as a vacuum cleaner separately.

The ground section would be a robot model that could carry a Robin along the way while it would do the cleaning.

The air section is going to include a controlled drone which could be attached to the Robin and help to clean elevated surfaces that are hard to reach

.

Even dough it sounds straightforward, there are couple problems to be considered. Such as attaching the bird to add-ons, keeping it stable, and getting enough suction to clean and enough power for drone to make it fly.  I am quite sure I am going to find more challenges along the way.

Despite that here I have couple of drawings and a video of The Go-Robin Machine as how I thing it could look and work. That’s the concept that I going to try to follow but changes may occur in development process and it’s not for sure that it would be 100% like that.

I have ordered the most parts and my next step is try to print Robin model with 3D-printer. Can’t wait for that! Stay tuned for more updates!
