Title: AUTONOMOUS TRAVELING BODY
Abstract:
Provided is an electrical cleaner that can realize effective and high-precision autonomous traveling. An obstacle detecting unit (74) detects an object that is an obstacle outside a body case. A map generating unit (67) creates a map in which information regarding an area through which the body case has traveled is recorded on the basis of detection of an object by the obstacle detecting unit (74) while the body case is traveling, and an own position estimated by an own position estimating unit (73). A control unit (27) causes the body case to autonomously travel by controlling operation of a driving wheel. The control unit (27) is provided with a traveling mode in which the control unit (27) controls operation of the driving wheel so as to cause the body case to autonomously travel along a travel path set on the basis of the map. The control unit (27) determines whether to change the subsequent traveling path on the basis of the obstacle detected by the obstacle detecting unit (74) during the traveling mode.
