The Task Roomba Preforms And Human Function or Task It Simulates

Roomba cleans floors all by it self. Roomba simulates a human picking up and cleaning house so they dont have to. Preforms vacuuming and simulates the movement of humans while doing it.

Where Robot Is Used And What Its Work Envelope Is

Its used in your own home on floor as a everyday house-hold item. It has 360 degrees of freedom, it weaves aroung object and tables to get a good clean on everthing. But it has no flexible joints

Is The Robotic End Effector Multi-Functional? And What Other Tasks Can It Preform?

Yes, the robotic end effector is multifunctional. It sweeps up dust, dirt and other grime from the ground and has a unique way of storing what is picked up.

How The Robot Is Taught To Preform Its Tasks

Its uses iAdapt technology, which is irobots advanced system of software and sensors that enable it to find its around around the house cleaning floors many times

Sensors The Roomba Has And How It Uses Them

Roomba has a infrared receiver, cliff sensors, object sensors and wall sensors. Infrared shows how long Roomba should spend its time cleaning. Cliff to tell if there is a drop by the sensors in front. Object when it bumps into something that it moves backwards and goes 90 degrees then straight
