Abstract
(EN)
A control system for a robotic floor cleaning machine configured to perform a cleaning operation along a cleaning path can comprise a controller, and a plurality of sensors. The controller can be configured to control autonomous movement of the robotic floor cleaning machine along the cleaning path and autonomous performance of the cleaning operation. The plurality of sensors can be configured to sense a location of the robotic floor cleaning machine relative to surroundings of the robotic floor cleaning machine. At least two sensors from the plurality of sensors are configured to locate the robotic floor cleaning machine in overlapping areas of the surroundings.

La présente invention concerne un système de commande pour une machine robotique de nettoyage des sols configurée pour effectuer une opération de nettoyage selon un trajet de nettoyage pouvant comporter une unité de commande, et une pluralité de capteurs. Le contrôleur peut être configuré pour commander le déplacement autonome de la machine robotique de nettoyage des sols selon la trajectoire de nettoyage et l'exécution autonome de l'opération de nettoyage. La pluralité de capteurs peuvent être configurés pour détecter une localisation de la machine robotique de nettoyage des sols par rapport à l'environnement de la machine robotique de nettoyage des sols. Au moins deux capteurs parmi la pluralité de capteurs sont configurés pour localiser la machine robotique de nettoyage des sols dans des zones de chevauchement de l'environnement.
