Title: ROBOT MOVEMENT CONTROL METHOD, AND ROBOT
Abstract:
A robot movement control method comprises: acquiring position information about two adjacent obstacles located at two sides of a robot along a movement direction of the robot or along a perpendicular direction to the movement direction, and calculating a distance between the two adjacent obstacles; determining whether the distance between the two adjacent obstacles is greater than a first pre-set distance; setting a virtual obstacle boundary between the two adjacent obstacles if the distance between the two adjacent obstacles is not greater than the first pre-set distance; and controlling a movement path of the robot by means of the virtual obstacle boundary. By means of the control method, there is no need to use an external virtual wall generation apparatus, and the robot itself can complete the setting of the virtual obstacle boundary, thereby effectively reducing the cost thereof. Also disclosed is a robot, comprising: a position acquisition module used for acquiring position information about two adjacent obstacles located at two sides of a robot along a movement direction of the robot or along a perpendicular direction to the movement direction, and calculating a distance between the two adjacent obstacles; a distance determination module used for determining whether the distance between the two adjacent obstacles is greater than a first pre-set distance; a boundary setting module used for setting a virtual obstacle boundary between the two adjacent obstacles if the distance between the two adjacent obstacles is not greater than the first pre-set distance; and a movement control module used for controlling a movement path of the robot by means of the virtual obstacle boundary.
