Rolling Duster

Solo Project

Motivation

The design was inspired by the mechanism of a salt spreader. In the salt spreader, a person pushes it, and the spinning broadcast plate is controlled by the wheels. Similarly, this gear-driven dust brush operates in a comparable fashion. When a person pushes the rolling duster by gripping the handle on the sides, the gear mechanism propels the brush to collect dust.  

Desired Brush Motion Path

I implemented the four bar linkage mechanism (a, b, c, and d), followed Grashof mechanism principles, and incorporated gear trains to achieve this functionality.
