This painting and washing robot was designed to improve the appearance of high-rise buildings and increase safety too. Developed in Singapore, OutBot is a robotic system conceived by ELID Technology International in partnership with Nanyang Technical University (NTU).
The painting and washing robot not only helps people avoid potentially dangerous situations (activities undergone at great heights), it is also the result of a call from the Singaporean Housing and Development Board (HDB) to automate the high-rise building painting. OutBot makes painting the exterior of such tall structures more efficient and safe for workers, and can also be used for cleaning purposes.
This example of robotic technology demonstrates how automation can be applied in the construction industry.
