Abstract

PURPOSE: To attain the complete cleaning by driving zigzag an automatic cleaner within a room for production of a map showing the cleaned areas and a map showing the positions of obstacles and moving the cleaner to the nucleaned areas for zigzag drive as soon as said both maps are produced.
CONSTITUTION: A room to be cleaned is enclosed by walls (ab, bc, cd and da) and an obstacle limited by sides (ef, fg, gh and he) exists in this room. An automatic cleaner is started at a start point A and moved straight and inverted at the side (cd) with a prescribed shift equal to pitch width (p). This inversion is carried out every time the cleaner gets close to walls or the obstacle. Then the driven areas are stored for production of a map to show the cleaned areas and a map to show the position of the obstacle. An uncleaned area is detected out of the map at a point B and a specific point D is decided. Then a route of points B-C-D is calculated and the cleaner is shifted to the point D. Thus the cleaner is driven zigzag in the same way. In such a way, the room can be completely cleaned.
