  1. Oct 29, 2006 #1
    I am currenty doing a project which involves building an automatic floor scrubber. I am thinking of using planetary gears for my design. Could someone please give me some advice on the design. Are there any good books that i can refer to. Any form of help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.

    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.
