Automation has become the basic requirement in this developing world. Today in this present era, automation helps us to save time, expense as well as manpower. It is significant to have smooth and effective system to sustain the vehicles cleanliness. Automatic vehicle washing machine concentrates on car washer system using PLC. Automatic vehicle washer system has three capital processes namely washing, cleansing and drying. Hence the external of the vehicle will be washed by detecting the vehicle on conveyor belt and further controlled by PLC. Automatic vehicle washer is served with the usage of a conveyor belt which carries the vehicle. Proximity sensors are used for detecting the vehicle, which are placed in their positions according to the functioning of the washer. As soon as the vehicle is sensed, the functioning of conveyor assembly invokes. With the predefined time delay, the conveyor gets suspend. Vehicle washer technique is the combination of different functions which performs scattering the solution of detergent water, then cleaning with normal water and finally wiping the wetness using cotton brushes. Vehicle washing can be done where vehicles are parked for a long time and washing car can be done easily like fuel filling stations, super markets, hospitals, government buildings, railway stations and can also be widely used in service stations and manufacturing units.
