(54) Title (EN): METHOD OF A ROBOTIC CLEANING DEVICE
(54) Title (FR): PROCÉDÉ D'UN DISPOSITIF DE NETTOYAGE ROBOTISÉ

(57) Abstract:
(EN): The invention relates to a method of a robotic cleaning device (100) of controlling operation of a cleaning program in progress, and a robotic cleaning device (100) configured to perform the method. In an aspect of the invention, a robotic cleaning device (100) configured to control operation of a cleaning program in progress is provided. The robotic cleaning device (100) comprises a propulsion system (112, 113, 115a, 115b) configured to move the robotic cleaning device (100), at least one battery (117) configured to power the robotic cleaning device (100), and a controller (116) configured to receive an instruction to pause the cleaning program in progress, control, in response to said instruction to pause, the propulsion system (112, 113, 115a, 115b) to cause the robotic cleaning device (100) to travel to a charging station to recharge the robotic cleaning device battery (117), receive a further instruction to resume the cleaning program that was in progress upon receiving the instruction to pause, and resume, in response to said further instruction, the cleaning program that was in progress upon receiving the instruction to pause.
(FR): L'invention concerne un procédé d'un dispositif de nettoyage robotisé (100) de commande du fonctionnement d'un programme de nettoyage en cours et un dispositif de nettoyage robotisé (100) configuré pour mettre en Ĺ“uvre le procédé. Dans un aspect de l'invention, un dispositif de nettoyage robotisé (100) est configuré pour commander le fonctionnement d'un programme de nettoyage en cours. Le dispositif de nettoyage robotisé (100) comprend un système de propulsion (112, 113, 115a, 115b) conçu pour déplacer le dispositif de nettoyage robotisé (100), au moins une batterie (117) conçue pour alimenter le dispositif de nettoyage robotisé (100) et un dispositif de commande (116) conçu pour recevoir une instruction pour mettre en pause le programme de nettoyage en cours, commander, en réponse à ladite instruction de pause, le système de propulsion (112, 113, 115a, 115b) pour amener le dispositif de nettoyage robotisé (100) à se déplacer vers une station de charge pour recharger la batterie de dispositif de nettoyage robotisé (117), recevoir une autre instruction pour reprendre le programme de nettoyage qui était en cours lors de la réception de l'instruction de pause et reprendre, en réponse à ladite instruction supplémentaire, le programme de nettoyage qui était en cours lors de la réception de l'instruction de pause.
