"Edelsto," a building exterior cleaning robot built by a team from Hanyang University led by Professor Seo Tae-won (Division of Mechanical Engineering), won the prize for most innovative product at the 2020 Reddot Design Awards held by the German Nordheim Westfalen Design Center. The Reddot Awards are in the world’s top 3 design awards, with more than 6,500 product submissions from 60 countries this year.

Professor Seo’s Edelstro, which was selected as the Most Innovative Product this year, is a robot that is installed in the gondola of skyscrapers to analyze and clean the exterior walls of buildings without human casualties. Also, users can closely check contaminated areas using visual sensors and Artificial Intelligence (AI) algorithms installed in the robot, and the point that intuitive cleaning by manipulation of squeeze·brush nozzles is being highlighted.
 

Professor Seo said that “Through the Dubai International Building & Construction show (THE BIG 5) and CES exhibition, the utility of and demand for Edelstro has been confirmed, along with the recognition of its aesthetic value from the Reddot Awards this year, and noted that “We plan to release a prototype by the end of the year after testing its suitability for diverse environments in other countries.”
