This project was a collaboration between RMIT University’s Industrial Design studio and the Australian brand, Oates. The studio aims to generate new ideas for cleaning products, services & systems and new pathways for the Oates brand.

The cleaning industry is mostly operating with manual labour, and because of this, there are not many opportunities to include technical products. Electronic parts are becoming more affordable to be incorporated into more innovative designs for the cleaning industries. Advanced technology provides efficiency and consistency that would make the cleaning processes much leaner.
