Crab Cleaner / Drones

Crab Cleaner

Inspired by the crab's shape, we designed a drone used for high-altitude window cleaning named Crab Cleaner.We usually cleaning the building exterior glass by aerial work, while this method can easily lead to casualties, low cleaning efficiency,and it's difficult to control the quality of cleaning.Crab Cleaner has peelable cleaning cloth on the outer frame to wipe the glass.The drone automatically detect the degree of glass contamination automatically.We can clean the glass more efficiently by controlling the amount of spray cleaning fluid.The drone returns to the charging station for charging voluntarily when the battery is insufficient.
