Abstract/Artist Statement

The automated whiteboard eraser is a whiteboard/eraser system where an automated eraser system is integrally mated with a whiteboard such that the simple press of a button will activate the system and cause the eraser to clean the board. The eraser is a vertically oriented wiper which spans the height of the board and is held in place by brackets at the top and bottom of the board. The brackets are floating on bearings at the top and bottom of the board, such that they are free to move horizontally along the board when driven by a motive force. A motor and track system is mounted on the back of the board, such that when activated, the motor assembly crawls along the track and moves the brackets at the top and bottom of the board. The brackets then move the vertical wiper horizontality across the board, erasing the contents of the board in one pass. The entire system is operated by a simple, 3 button interface mounted on the frame of the whiteboard and controlled by a Parallax BasicStamp control circuit.
