This is the first heavy-lift drone that's designed for high altitude cleaning services.
The Latvian company, Aerones, has introduced their line of heavy-duty tethered cleaning drones that wash the windows of high altitude skyscrapers in an efficient manner.
These drones are powered with water and electricity that comes from the ground, are easily adaptable to different building styles, and essentially eliminate the human safety risk of such heights.
The three meter-wide, 12-rotor machine is equipped with hoses and sponges, with onboard cameras allowing the ground-based pilot to carefully monitor the washing process.
The drone is capable to reach up to 350m in just a few minutes. In case there is a need to reach higher heights, multi-stage integrated solution can be used. Electricity cables are provided for the drone to stay in the air until cleaning is done.
Demonstrations take place in Riga, Latvia and Aerones drone can be seen in action below.
