The wiper is driven by electric motor instead of human effort to clean the floor more easily, fast and without uneven stops.

Design statement-
It has following parts:
1. Wiper
2. Cylinder mounted on casing of appliance to guide the wiper rod
3. Driver wheel with adjustable crank radius
4. Electric motor mounted in the casing of appliance to drive the wheels
5. Connecting rod to connect the wiper rod with the driver wheel
6. Universal joint to provide degree of freedom in the connection of wiper rod & connecting rod
7. Appliance’s self-inclination adjustable body to enclose the mechanism and to make all appliance movable
8. Handle to steer and control the cleaning

Following strokes completes the working cycle.
