Traditional automated sweepers have a slow operating speed, high wear-rate due to contact with the ground, causing friction on the brushed disc, and high fuel consumption. The Wind Messenger tackles these problems by avoiding direct contact with the ground, increasing the efficiency of the fan system to reduce fuel consumption and improves the effectiveness of cleaning by using a wind sweep technique.
The chassis and suspension system adapts quickly to changing terrain. It is able to sweep ores, cement blocks and bricks of 2-3 centimetres in diameter and clean objects of 3-8 centimetres in diameter. Both the cleaning device and the blowing and suction sweeping mechanism are patented.
