Abstract
The Solar Panel Cleanerbot is an electrical engineering junior and senior design project. The objective is to build a robot that can clean the solar panels on the roof of Holmes Hall in order to maintain optimal efficiency. While it will first be designed for use on the Holmes Hall panels, we want to create a robot that can be modified easily to fit different photovoltaic arrays so that it can be used on both commercial and residential arrays. With little to no technology currently available to clean solar panels efficiently, this project could have a tremendous impact on solar panel life and clean energy efficiency.
