Sweeping robot, as a convenient intelligent home appliance, is gradually coming into our life. However, because it is a new kind of smart home, most users know little about the robot. Although we can notice the differences in hardware, such as suction, brush design, dust box volume and so on, the differences of internal algorithms have been ignored for a long time, but we don’t know that there are great differences among them.
Just as human beings use brooms and vacuum cleaners as tools, for sweeping robots, hardware such as floor brushes and dust boxes are just the tools they use. As the core of “intelligence”, a set of mature algorithms determines the behavior of sweeping robots. How to plan the path, how to avoid obstacles, how to get out of trouble, and what to do when the power is low, just like human thinking, this kind of decision in the robot processor actually depends on the algorithm to execute.
Like the earliest sweeping robot, the algorithm is very simple. The feedback system based on the random collision theory makes the sweeping robot roam around the room like a headless fly, not to mention how much annoying noise and damage to the furniture, but only the cleaning efficiency is enough to remove it from the ranks of “smart home”.
Today’s sweeping robot, first of all, with the blessing of a variety of sensors, so that there is no “blind people feeling like” wandering around, the complexity of the algorithm is different from the past.
Take the popular stone sweeping robot T7 as an example. Its core algorithm consists of real-time data management algorithm, perception and mapping algorithm, navigation and motion algorithm. If studied carefully, it can be divided into room segmentation, feature fusion and path planning. As many as 29 independent projects, these algorithms work at the same time and cooperate with each other, which makes the stone sweeping robot T7 not only intelligent and efficient in cleaning, but also has high-level settings such as area division and cleaning customization.
The work of sweeping robot does not depend on a single algorithm, but on the coordination of many algorithms. When the robot works, we can see that it will give priority to use Z-shaped lines for cleaning, and give priority to long lines as the straight-line path, so as to reduce the most time-consuming turning times and achieve the highest efficiency.
When we encounter obstacles in work, obstacle avoidance algorithms are also playing a real-time role. How to avoid collision with objects, we need obstacle avoidance algorithm. The T7 series of stone sweeper robot can be perfectly attached to the edge to avoid obstacles when moving, and there is no need to worry about collision and make loud noise.
Not only can avoid obstacles, but also the intelligence of getting out of trouble is also important under the support of the algorithm. How to get out of the “dead end” safely, effectively and quickly, and at the same time, avoid taking the wrong road. The T7 stone sweeper robot also performs very well with the help of the extrication algorithm.
Powerful hardware is the foundation of a sweeping robot, but don’t forget that “smart mind” is also very important. With an intelligent algorithm, the robot can completely clean itself, instead of worrying about the owner after he is busy. What’s more, today’s hardware specifications, the homogenization of sweeping robots has been very serious. On the premise that there is no gap between them, perhaps the more intelligent and convenient T7 series of stone sweeping robots is a better choice.
