Because the ‘schoonmaakbot’ of Sinfonia Technology is provided with a camera and a plurality of sensors, the robot may move without guide rails on the panels, provided that the angle of rotation between 5 ° and 30 °. It may also be a distance of up to 50cm between two panels bridge, while also a difference in height can be overcome. To 30cm

Via a wireless connection status of the robot can be read, writes Techon. The device is equipped with a removable battery and the robot will automatically drive to the bottom edge when a new battery is needed. Furthermore, there are present so that it can be infra-red sensors. Also at night cleaned

According Sinfonia Technology robot with a fully charged battery can clean up to 100m ². This device would be especially useful in large solar parks.
