Abstract (en)

[origin: WO2015120833A1] The invention relates to flying robots which can cover large distances between arrangements of smooth or curved surfaces without requiring manual redeployment. This reduces the need for personnel and allows fully-automated maintenance of large surfaces, for example solar power stations. The flying robot consists of a drive unit having at least two rotors, and is attached to a cleaning module. This comprises a brush, as well as solar cells on one side and electrodes for receiving current on the other. The flying robot is suitable for use on solar power stations, both photo-voltaic and photo-reflective. The design of the cleaning module allows the flying robot to charge itself using sunlight or undergo a quick charge using electrodes.
