Title (EN) DEVICE FOR TREATING A SURFACE
(FR) APPAREIL DE TRAITEMENT D'UNE SURFACE
(DE) GERÄT ZUR BEARBEITUNG EINER OBERFLÄCHE
Abstract:
(EN) The invention relates to a device (1) for treating a surface (21), in particular to a cleaning robot, having a detection device (2) for identifying the type of surface (21), which detection device (2) has a light source (3, 4, 5, 6) for irradiating the surface (21) with light and has a sensor (7) for detecting the light which is reflected by the surface (21). In order to improve the identification of the type of surface, it is proposed that a three-dimensional screen panel (12) which forms a plurality of partial volumes (13, 14, 15, 16) is associated with the sensor (7), wherein each partial volume (13, 14, 15, 16) is in each case associated with a different sensor subarea (8, 9, 10, 11) of the sensor (7), and wherein adjacent sensor subareas (8, 9, 10, 11) are optically separated from one another by means of the screen panel (12) such that light is prevented from passing from a first partial volume (13, 14, 15, 16) to a second partial volume (13, 14, 15, 16). Furthermore, the invention relates to a method for operating a device (1) for treating a surface (21).
(FR) L'invention concerne un appareil (1) de traitement d'une surface (21), en particulier un robot de nettoyage, qui comporte un dispositif de détection (2) reconnaissant la nature de la surface (21), lequel dispositif de détection (2) présente une source de lumière (3, 4, 5, 6) permettant d'exposer la surface (21) à une lumière et un capteur (7) de détection de la lumière réfléchie par la surface (21). L'invention vise à améliorer la reconnaissance de la nature de la surface. À cet effet, une coulisse écran tridimensionnelle (12) formant plusieurs volumes partiels (13, 14, 15, 16) est associée au capteur (7), chaque volume partiel (13, 14, 15, 16) est associé à une surface partielle de détection (8, 9, 10, 11) différente du capteur (7), et les surfaces partielles de détection adjacentes (8, 9, 10, 11) du capteur sont isolées optiquement l'une de l'autre par la coulisse écran (12) de telle manière qu'on évite un débordement de la lumière hors d'un premier volume partiel (13, 14, 15, 16) vers un second volume partiel (13, 14, 15, 16). L'invention concerne par ailleurs un procédé permettant de faire fonctionner un appareil (1) de traitement d'une surface (21).
(DE) Die Erfindung betrifft ein Gerät (1) zur Bearbeitung einer Oberfläche (21), insbesondere Reinigungsroboter, aufweisend eine Detektionseinrichtung (2) zur Erkennung der Art der Oberfläche (21), welche Detektionseinrichtung (2) eine Lichtquelle (3, 4, 5, 6) zur Bestrahlung der Oberfläche (21) mit Licht und einen Sensor (7) zur Detektion des von der Oberfläche (21) reflektierten Lichtes aufweist. Um die Erkennung der Art der Oberfläche zu verbessern, wird vorgeschlagen, dass dem Sensor (7) eine dreidimensionale, mehrere Teilvolumina(13, 14, 15, 16) ausbildende Blendenkulisse (12) zugeordnet ist, wobei jedes Teilvolumen (13, 14, 15, 16) jeweils einer anderen Sensorteilfläche (8, 9, 10, 11) des Sensors (7) zugeordnet ist und wobei benachbarte Sensorteilflächen (8, 9, 10, 11) mittels der Blendenkulisse (12) optisch so voneinander getrennt sind, dass ein Übertritt von Licht aus einem ersten Teilvolumen (13, 14, 15, 16) in ein zweites Teilvolumen (13, 14, 15, 16) verhindert ist. Des Weiteren betrifft die Erfindung ein Verfahren zum Betrieb eines Gerätes (1) zur Bearbeitung einer 1 Oberfläche (21).
