Cleaning robots are becoming one of the most popular new home appliances, a trusted little cleaning partner in many households. Unlike the traditional vacuum cleaner, this robot is able to clean your room by navigating across the floor and avoiding obstacles.
It also charges itself, all without using human help. How cool is that?! Let’s design an intelligent cleaning robot, by stepping into the shoes of a robot developer. Watch the video from Lesics:
Early designs included manual operation via remote control and a “self-drive” mode which allowed the machine to clean autonomously without human control.
Some designs use spinning brushes to reach tight corners, and some include a number of cleaning features along with the vacuuming feature mopping, UV sterilization, etc.More recent models use artificial intelligence and deep learning for better mapping, object identification and event-based cleaning.
