Abstract

A control unit of a station concentrically rotates a plurality of unit replacing units by a motor on a first horizontal plane parallel to a floor bearing the station when arrival of the self-propelled cleaner is detected. The control unit activates, as a unit for removing an old battery unit from the self-propelled cleaner, the unit replacing unit included among the plurality of unit replacing units and opposed to the self-propelled cleaner located on the station. After the old battery unit is removed from the self-propelled cleaner, the control unit activates the motor. By the rotation of this motor, another unit replacing unit opposed to the self-propelled cleaner is activated as a unit for attaching a new battery unit to the self-propelled cleaner instead of the unit replacing unit previously activated as the removing unit.
