In the present day scenario all the members of family are busy with their work and are not getting proper time to clean the house. The cleaning robot helps to clean and mop the floor. This is done by simply pressing a switch and the robot does the work. This also cuts down the labor used in factories for cleaning floor. Above being the case, motivated for the design and development of an automatic cleaning and mopping robot that does all the cleaning and mopping work with a simple press of a button. This robot can be controlled manually with the help of a mobile Bluetooth. The main moto of the project is to make this affordable and suitable for the Indian users and factories. The development of the robot starts with the design of a simple and most effective chassis for the robot which is a very important part as it has to carry all the weight on the robot. The electronics part where, the type of motor and its specification that should be used to run the bot, the sensors to be used, the microcontroller, the motor drivers, the wheels and other electronic components to be used on the robot are decided. Further, the assembling of the components will be done and finally testing and calibrating the device. A robot which is capable of efficient dust cleaning and moping of the floor of a given room is the main aim of the robot. It is aimed to make the robot economic and feasible for the economic class society. The target time of operation of the robot is one hour. The developed robot will be useful for the household application and industries. This helps to keep the workspace and house clean without the physical labor. Also, the device will clean the room with a single switch of button.
