Abstract
(EN)
Systems and methods for cleaning, drying, and thermally managing vehicle components are described herein. In some embodiments, the vehicle components can include various sensors and, more particularly, the surfaces of cameras, LIDAR sensors, etc., that need to be clean to effectively perceive the environment around the vehicle. In one embodiment, a cleaning system includes a central delivery system configured to route fluid, such as washer fluid, along one or more delivery channels to remote holding chambers. The holding chambers can hold and/or heat the fluid before delivering the fluid to nozzles that spray the fluid on nearby vehicle components to clean the components.

La présente invention concerne des systèmes et des procédés de nettoyage, de séchage et de gestion thermique de composants de véhicule. Dans certains modes de réalisation, les composants de véhicule peuvent inclure divers capteurs et, plus particulièrement, les surfaces de caméras, de capteurs de LIDAR, etc., qui nécessitent d'être propres pour percevoir efficacement l'environnement autour du véhicule. Dans un mode de réalisation, un système de nettoyage comprend un système de distribution centrale configuré pour acheminer un fluide, tel qu'un fluide de lave-glace, avec une ou plusieurs conduites de distribution vers des chambres de stockage distantes. Les chambres de stockage peuvent stocker et/ou chauffer le fluide avant sa distribution à des buses qui vaporisent le fluide sur des composants de véhicule à proximité pour nettoyer les composants.
