A robot vacuum needs to move freely around a house or space to clean it while staying away from things kept around and stay out of trouble. It goes around a house effectively cleaning the space or the room with basic two ways. One of the ways is the sensor.
The users need to understand that the robot vacuum does not see the world the way humans do. Even if there is a camera onboard it is not a human dressed as a machine. There are various sensor places in the robot vacuum for it to detect obstacles and other detractors or hazards to make sure it keeps a safe distance from them.
These sensors make sure the robot vacuum measures how far the robot has traveled and also help it discover new areas to cover. A robot vacuum’s behavior is programmed. The sensors trigger this
programmed behaviors and the robot responds accordingly. Depending on the manufacturer and the model the robot vacuum uses and works.
If the robot vacuum model is high end then it will include all self navigation systems and use the mapping technology to determine the way to carry out the work. Every manufacturer has their own
particular spin on mapping.
Currently the mapping is built around two slightly different methods where one uses the onboard digital camera that takes pictures of walls, ceilings, doorways, furniture and other landmarks, for example, Roomba’s 900 series vacuums and Samsung’s Powerbots. Whereas in the other method laser rangefinder is used. It is available in vacuums like Neato’s Botvac series. This way it measures the distance to objects in the vacuum’s path.
