  • U.S. Pat. No. 6,883,201 also discloses an autonomous floor-cleaning robot comprising a self-adjusting cleaning head subsystem that includes a dual-stage brush assembly having counter-rotating, asymmetric brushes and an adjacent, but independent, vacuum assembly such that the cleaning capability and efficiency of the self-adjustable cleaning head subsystem is optimized while concomitantly minimizing the power requirements thereof. The autonomous floor-cleaning robot further includes a side brush assembly for directing particulates outside the envelope of the robot into the self-adjusting cleaning head subsystem.
  • U.S. Pat. No. 7,827,654 discloses a self-traveling cleaner including a main body, the main body has a reverse side provided with a pair of driving wheels and a pair of auxiliary wheels. A brush mechanism is horizontally rotatably provided in a depression formed on a part of the reverse side. An inlet is further provided on the reverse side of the main body. A dust collector is connected to the inlet. The brush mechanism includes a rotation axis extending perpendicular to a floor surface, one arm made of elastic resin projecting laterally from a lower end of the rotation shaft, and a brush planted on an end portion of the arm toward the floor surface. The brush projects outwardly from the main body to collect dust near a wall surface, for example, while the arm rotates within the first rotation angle range, and the brush sweeps the collected dust toward the inlet while the arm rotates within the second rotation angle range.
  • All the aforesaid conventional techniques mainly include an automatic moving robot with a specific cleaning tool mounted thereon to perform cleaning tasks such as dust suction, floor sweeping or wiping, floor waxing and the like while the robot is moving. As the tool held on the robot only has single function, it can perform merely one type of task. Moreover, the robot has size limitation and cannot hold various types of tools.
