Title Avoiding falls from heights - Ballet of robots of the glazing of Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle
Original title PrÚvention des chutes de hauteur - La danse des robots sur les vitrages de Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle [in French]
Bibliographic information Sep. 2000, No.599, p.2-6. Illus.
Abstract In order to limit work at heights, the Roissy Charles-de-Gaulle airport in Paris opted for a remotely-controlled system for the cleaning of glazing in the new passenger terminal. This allows human interventions on the roof to be limited to equipment repair and maintenance. The robotic cleaning system is described in this article.
