Skyline Robotics, developers of Ozmo, the world’s first high-rise window-cleaning robot, recently announced the company has been awarded a patent from Japan related to the automation of work and using robotic arms on a building's façade.
The Japanese patent comes after the company obtained a patent from Singapore in May 2023 related to its award-winning, robotic window cleaning system.
Ozmo in the global marketplace
Michael Brown, Skyline Robotics CEO & chairman:
“Skyline’s technology is unparalleled in the global marketplace and patent offices are recognizing that. Continual independent evaluations of our technology are determining its uniqueness and innovation potential.”
Japan is a key strategic market for Skyline Robotics. Japan is the world’s third most automated country in manufacturing with several iconic buildings. According to the Council of Tall Buildings and Urban Density, the city of Tokyo is the seventh tallest city in the world with over 200 buildings taller than 150 meters. Skyline will now begin to prepare a go-to-market strategy for the region and engage with key market participants in this important global territory.
Skyline’s flagship robot, Ozmo, combines artificial intelligence, machine learning and computer vision with advanced robotics and sensors to tackle some of the most pressing industry challenges, including labor shortages and worker safety. With Ozmo, window washing can be performed up to three times faster than humans, without putting workers at risk.
Additionally, humans operate Ozmo, not replacing window washers and accelerating a future where humans and robots work together. The result is a smarter, faster, safer, and more economical alternative to human window washers.
