Do you have any requirements given? Like how closely it can clean around obstructions (table legs, walls, etc) or whether your scrubber must use a rotating disk or a cylindrical drum, or whether it must carry and apply water or some cleaning solution? You'll get better advice if you tell people what your guidelines are, what kind of materials and equipment you have access to, etc.

Hello,

I have experience in designing and building various types of machinery and equipment. I would be happy to offer some advice for your project.

Using planetary gears for your automatic floor scrubber design is a great idea. They are known for their compact size, high efficiency, and ability to handle heavy loads. However, it is important to carefully consider the size and number of gears needed for your specific design to ensure optimal performance.

In terms of resources, there are several books that could be helpful in your design process. "Gear Design Simplified" by Franklin D. Jones and "Handbook of Gear Design" by Darle W. Dudley are two commonly referenced books in the field of gear design. Additionally, there are many online resources and forums where you can find valuable information and advice from experts in the field.

In terms of the overall design of your automatic floor scrubber, it is important to consider factors such as the type of flooring, the size of the area to be cleaned, and the power source. Additionally, incorporating features such as adjustable brush pressure and automated water and solution dispensing can greatly improve the efficiency and effectiveness of your design.

I hope this helps and I wish you success in your project. Feel free to reach out with any further questions or concerns. Good luck!
