For the development of an automatic floor cleaning robot system, an accurate positioning method in unstructured and dynamically changing environments is indispensable. Dead reckoning is a popular method, but is not reliable for measurement over long distances especially on uneven and slippery...
Cleaning is a major problem associated with pools. Since the manual cleaning is tedious and boring there is an interest in automating the task. This paper presents methods for autonomous localization and navigation for a pool cleaner to enable full coverage of pools. Path following cannot be...
Coverage path planning is the determination of a path that a robot must take in order to pass over each point in an environment. Applications include de-mining, floor scrubbing, and inspection. We developed the boustrophedon cellular decomposition, which is an exact cellular decomposition...
Free navigation in indoor environments is one of the main enabling technologies for many service robot applications. The SIEMENS navigation system SINAS which is primarily targeted towards cleaning robot applications, has proved its suitability for tough everyday operation since August 1996 on...
The definition of the desired functions and the design of an ultimate versatile personal robot is an ongoing debate. Meanwhile, however, precursors of this yet to evolve species are well on their way to become commercial products. Cleaning robots for public environments as well as for private...
This paper describes some of the main technology areas that have been actually used in the development of cleaning robots. The approach taken in this survey is to examine the characteristics of cleaning robots that have made successful laboratory demonstration or have become commercial products....
