Cleaning robot race

Brushes until the station floor flashes

Deutsche Bahn operates more than 5,400 railway stations throughout Germany. The floors of the train station and the platforms of large stations are cleaned at night with scrubber machines. In future, station cleaning teams will be supported by cleaning robots.

For this purpose, we are now looking specifically for providers who want to keep Deutsche Bahn stations clean with Deutsche Bahn, so that millions of customers  feel comfortable. By October 29th, start-ups, inventors and companies were called upon to participate in the "Automated Cleaning: challenge".

On January, 30th, 2018, 12.30 pm the applicants will join a robotic robot race. The participants clean with their robots the station Berlin Hauptbahnhof. The aim is to find the best and most economical fully automatic floor cleaning machines. The prize will be awarded to the winners by a two-year framework contract with DB.
