Title
(EN) ROTARY WIPER SYSTEM
(FR) SYSTÈME D'ESSUIE-GLACE ROTATIF
Abstract
(EN)
The disclosure provides for a wiper system for cleaning a surface of a sensor housing, such as a sensor housing positioned on top of a vehicle. The wiper system includes a plurality of windows spaced around a sensor housing, and a plurality of wipers positioned around the sensor housing, each of the wipers includes a wiper blade configured to clean a corresponding window of the plurality of windows. The wiper system further includes a drive system including a moveable part coupled to a motor. The motor is configured to drive the drive system to simultaneously rotate the plurality of wipers around the sensor housing such that the plurality of wipers remove debris from the plurality of windows.
(FR)
L'invention concerne un système d'essuie-glace pour nettoyer une surface d'un boîtier de capteur, tel qu'un boîtier de capteur positionné sur le dessus d'un véhicule. Le système d'essuie-glace comprend une pluralité de fenêtres espacées autour d'un boîtier de capteur, et une pluralité d'essuie-glaces positionnés autour du boîtier de capteur, chacun des essuie-glaces comprend un balai d'essuie-glace configurée pour nettoyer une fenêtre correspondante de la pluralité de fenêtres. Le système d'essuie-glace comprend en outre un système d'entraînement comprenant une partie mobile couplée à un moteur. Le moteur est configuré pour entraîner le système d'entraînement pour faire tourner simultanément la pluralité d'essuie-glaces autour du boîtier de capteur de telle sorte que la pluralité d'essuie-glaces retirent des débris de la pluralité de fenêtres.
