Abstract

To provide an effective, safe, time and labor saving aeropotic glass cleaner (15) apparatus, depending mainly on a top-wing (21) mini-aircraft (16) moving up/down opposite to the target glass. Three apparatuses (15) stored in each cabover truck (18) container, which includes also the fluid supply tank, fluid pump, and batteries (26), in addition to a control pannel, in the truck cabin, to monitor/control remotely the cleaning process. It further consists of a water distribution block (50) on the ground, 2-way motor (53) with pulleys releasing the fluid hoses and the electric/data cable to the mini-aircraft (16), toproof mounted U-shaped frame (41) with 2-way motor (38), and pulleys for releasing the safety ropes to the mini-aircraft (16), a reciprocating cleaning brush (23) with rinse/compress mechanism, cameras, distance sensors, wind meter, speed sensors, cotrol unit (55).. all to control the cleaning process of the apparatus (15) which is capable to clean facades with protruded vertical parts, curving inwards or outwards.
