How Does A Roomba Work?

Although the Roomba is a vacuum cleaner, it does not mean it has no pattern of functionality. As matter of fact, its own mind and tends to move in patterns that it had been built to move. For instance, Roomba vacuum cleaner can begin cleaner from wall, inward into center of the room, down to other wall. And other times, it can begin to clean from center of the room and clean outwards in a spiral form.

However, there is so much you get from this old model. Let’s begin with the speed at which it moves. Unlike a lot of vacuum cleaners that love to pace steadily, this particular model of Roomba moves around at a very good speed. Which means it finishes cleaning faster than others. Although it can easily slide through a pile of dirt or rugs because that I’ll require more cleaning time. It is not just enough for any vacuum cleaner to have a dual rotating brush and not use it effectively. This set of smart brushes is present in the Roomba 650 and it definitely uses it effectively to collect every dirt and debris from the corners of the house. 

What is A Roomba Made Out Of?

Let’s begin with its mode of power. Roomba is built with a rechargeable NiMH battery which means that the Roomba can only work around the house when its battery has been charged. Its basic charging time is 3 hours although it can be fully charged in approximately 2 hours of its total cleaning time. How does the Roomba move around the house? Well, it has two motor-driven tracked wheels.

What is the usefulness of a vacuum cleaner that cannot move around? So this means that its mobility is actually a major feature. It moves around when power is being supplied to its wheels. The Roomba is made up of 5 motors. Beginning with motors driving the two wheels. Then one motor is dedicated to the side rotating brush, another motor is for the vacuum, and lastly, one motor is for the agitator assembly. There are also additional features like the filter, dustbin, the Clean button, etc.

What Sensors Does A Roomba Have?

Just like humans have 5 sense organs, it is fair enough to say that this smart vacuum device has been awarded its own sensory organs too. And that is why it functions intelligently. The Roomba uses its sensors to also perceive its environment which will determine what its next reaction will be. Let’s see how one of its sensory units works. The Roomba comes with a “Clift Sensor”. This sensor alerts the Roomba to know when it is close to a clift for instance the stairs.
Once the Roomba receives this signal, it will move back in the opposite direction it has come. Another sensor is the “wall sensor”. This allows the Roomba to know when it is moving close to a wall. However, in this instance, the Roomba will not retreat but rather move along the wall to clean out the corners of the house. Another sensor this smart device has is the “object sensor”. This sensor is activated when Roomba comes in to interact with an object. Other sensors include the Dirt sensor, Front sensor and bumper sensor, room mapping, and bin full indicator.

How Does Roomba Know When To Stop?

A Roomba can either know when to stop cleaning and also know when to stop going in a certain direction. When a Roomba is vacuuming and it moves in the direction of the stairs or any drop-off point, there is something called the cliff sensor. This signals to it that it’s moving close to a cliff and then it backs off to the other direction. This works by the help of the inbuilt infrared and photocell sensors. Another way the Roomba knows when to stop is with the help of the dirt sensor. Therefore, once the dirt sensor is no longer signifying to the Roomba any dirty part of the house, it automatically stops moving around the house and goes back to its dock.

How Does A Roomba Know Where To Go?

In this manner, if this is not the first time the Roomba is cleaning your house, the Roomba must have by now had a pattern in which it moves around cleaning. Beginning from its first clean, the Roomba begins to master the environment and by that, it creates a cleaning pattern. In addition, the Roomba uses its inbuilt sensors to navigate where and where not to go around the house while cleaning.
