How does smart vacuum cleaner Yujin Robot iClebo Arte work
Smart vacuum cleaner is becoming more and more popular recently. However, if you think about buying such a device, you should know how it works. Let’s have a look at Yujin Robot iClebo Arte smart robotic vacuum cleaner.
A built-in camera helps the vacuum cleaner to navigate around the room, it analyzes the situation and creates motion pattern. The front of the device has special infrared sensors that respond to obstacles. If the robot for some reason did not "see" the obstacle and meets it, then the sensors activate and the gadget turns back according to the programmed algorithm.
Dust bag is a plastic container, the user presses a special button to take it out. Suction hole is located inside the robot.
The device has four wheels: two large ones are located on the sides of the body and move the bot, a small one is in the front part of the vacuum cleaner, and another one is auxiliary. The iClebo Arte can move, rotate and turn over.
The robot has a 2200 mAh battery under the cover. Two additional brushes on the sides of the body, and a turbo brush in the middle of it are responsible for capturing and directing dust into the suction hole. There are also channels for the floor polisher next to the dust bag, which can be used for wet cleaning and collecting small debris like sand, salt, flour.
Six electric drives are located inside the robot: two of them control side brushes, one, a turbo brush, another, a suction hole, and two other, side wheels. The vacuum cleaner is controlled by the Abov MC81F4216D microprocessor, which is located in the front of the body, and dust bag mounting sensor is located next to it. The device will not work without the dust bag.
There is a gyro sensor near the motherboard to help a robot navigate in space and determine the angle of rotation.
Motherboard of the vacuum cleaner is equipped with many diverse modules: a camera, a display, electric drives, etc. 19-volt adapter recharges the device. 3 infrared sensors and 3 collision sensors are located in the front of the body, there are also 3 level difference sensors on the bottom.
In addition, robot has sensors to determine whether the vacuum cleaner is on the floor, the dust bag mounting sensor, and distance determining sensor. All sensors transfer information to the motherboard, where the robot analyzes it.
However, it is not easy to correctly update the robot software. ST-Link program and the J2 JTAG connector on the board should be used to update the system.
