When clothes are soiled with dust or animal hair, they need to be removed. However, since this process is mainly done manually, take labor and time. Then in this paper, we develop a robot whose purpose is to automatically remove dust from clothes on hangers with a brush. This robot used two brushes. First, the robot uses two brushes to hold both sides of the clothes on the hanger. Next, move the brush from top to bottom to remove dust. In addition, by moving the brush extends and repeating the action of removing dust, dust can be removed from the entire clothes in about 2 minutes. This robot can reduce the consumption of labor and time.
