Skyline Robotics News & Latest:
Skyline Robotics’ mission to protect and preserve New York’s iconic skyline just took a big step forward. Skyline Robotics is disrupting the $40B window cleaning industry by offering a smarter, faster, safer, and more economical alternative to human window washers
The makers of OZMO, the world’s first robotic-armed window cleaner, have received a key investment from commercial and residential real estate giant, Durst Ventures, an affiliate of The Durst Organization.
The Durst Organization owns some of New York’s most notable skyscrapers including One Bryant Park, One World Trade Center and 151 West 42nd Street. The Durst investment will further Skyline’s development and deployment of OZMO to automate the future of window washing.
Skyline’s flagship robot, OZMO, combines artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision with advanced robotics and sensors. Targeting high-risk skyscraper windows, the smart, automated service robot has proven to clean three times faster than traditional window washers without missing a spot. OZMO is still operated by humans resulting in a collaborative relationship that keeps humans out of harm’s way. To see OZMO in action, watch this video.
