The LEVEL of TECHNOLOGY

[0001] In General, the cleaners are home appliances that suck foreign substances from the floor surface to remove these foreign substances from the floor surface. In recent years cleaners for automatic cleaning other cleaners are called automatic cleaners. This automatic cleaner can suck foreign substances from the floor surface to remove foreign matter, moving under the action of the driving force of the electric motor, which operates from the battery.

[0002] a Driving device mounted in the housing that defines the appearance of all automatic cleaner. In addition, automatic cleaners suck foreign substances from the floor surface, moving in a given direction from the driving device. For this reason, a suction hole to suction foreign matter from a floor surface formed on the bottom surface of the casing. Additionally, the main brush, which directly comes into contact with foreign substances to suction foreign matter suction hole may be located on the inlet hole.

[0003] However, the automatic cleaner can suck only foreign substances that are present in the area that corresponds to the bottom �the thoron casing, essentially, the area that corresponds to the lower side of the suction inlet. Thus, in the case of the area corresponding to the outer side of the suction opening, cleaning may not be fully implemented.

[0004] To address this phenomenon, on the bottom surface of the housing can be installed side brush. At least one portion of the side brush continues outwards from the casing.

[0005] in addition, the side brush may spin relative to the shell to smetana foreign matter in the area corresponding to the outer side of the casing, essentially, a suction outlet in the direction of the suction opening.

[0006] However, auto cleaner, in accordance with the prior art, can have the following restrictions.

[0007] As described above, the side brush may spin for suction of foreign matter in the area corresponding to the outer side of the suction opening, through the suction hole. Thus, if you increase the length of the side brushes, area, clean auto cleaner, can be significantly increased. However, if you increase the length of the side brush, side brush may be damaged during the cleaning or storage of the side brushes. In addition, if you increase the length of the side brushes, the area occupied automatic cleaner, will b�greater. As a result, the automatic cleaner may become uncomfortable during storage.

DETAILED description of the INVENTION

[0038] Below will be described embodiments of the present disclosure, examples of which are presented on the attached drawings.

[0039] In the following detailed description of the invention preferred embodiments will make reference to the accompanying drawings that form a part of, and are shown for illustration specific preferred embodiments in which the invention can be implemented in practice. These implementation options are described in sufficient detail to provide those skilled in the art the possibility of implementation in practice of the invention, and it should be understood that can be used in other variants of implementation, and that logical structural, mechanical, electrical, and chemical changes may be made without going beyond the essence or scope of the invention. To exclude parts that are not needed for practical implementation of the invention by a person skilled in the art, the description can exclude certain information known to those skilled in the art. The following detailed op�Sanya invention, therefore, should not be understood in a restrictive sense.

[0040] Fig. 1 shows the bottom surface of the automatic cleaner in accordance with a variant implementation of Fig. 2 shows a state in which the cover of the automatic cleaner is separated, in accordance with a variant implementation, and Fig. 3 shows a block diagram of the automatic cleaner in accordance with a variant implementation.

[0041] Fig. 1-3, the automatic cleaner 10 in accordance with a variant implementation, includes a housing 110 that defines its appearance. Although the casing 110 has a flat, faceted form, the present disclosure is not limited to the shape of the housing 110.

[0042] the Various parts constituting the automatic cleaner 10 may be mounted within housing 110. For example, the suction module 180 that is designed to suction foreign substances, and the dust collection module (not shown) designed to collect suctioned foreign substances, may be located within housing 110. The housing 110 may include a base 111 and the cover (not shown) that engages with an upper portion of the base 111.

[0043] in addition, a suction hole 112 formed on the bottom surface of the casing 110. Such a suction hole 112 can be used as an inlet for suction of foreign matter into the casing 110, essentially,in the dust collection module, using suction module 180. The suction hole 112 may be formed, for example, through the cutout portion of the bottom surface of the casing 110.

[0044] the Main brush 120 is located at a position corresponding to the suction hole 112, inside the housing 110. Main brush 120 may pass through the suction opening 112 for contact with foreign substances on a floor surface, removing thus any foreign substances. Main brush 120 is mounted for rotation on the casing 110.

[0045] the First portion 150 of the actuator generating force of the actuator for rotating the main brushes 120, located on the casing 110. The energy of the first portion 150 of the actuator can be transferred to the main brush 120 from the first part 160 of the energy transfer.

[0046] furthermore, the driving module to move the casing 110, may be disposed on the casing 110. The driving module may include a portion 142 of the drive wheels located inside the casing 110, and a plurality of wheels that rotate from a portion 142 of the drive wheels. In the current embodiment of the portion 142 of the actuator may include a motor, denoted by the same reference position, and the wheels 140.

[0047] One or more assemblies 200 and 300 side brushes can be located on the lower portion of the casing 110. In the current embodiment of the structure in which majestuosos 200 and 300 of the side brushes are located in the casing 110, will be described as an example.

[0048] the Assembly 200 and 300 side brushes can include a first Assembly 200 side brushes located on one side of the front portion of the casing 110, and a second Assembly 300 side brushes located on the other side of the front portion of the casing 110. However, the second Assembly 300 of the side brushes can be excluded in the current version of the implementation.

[0049] the First Assembly 200 of the side brush Assembly may include a first side brush 220, which rotates relative to the first shaft 223 of rotation. The first side brush 220 may be mounted rotatably on your element 210.

[0050] the Second Assembly 300 of the side brush Assembly may include a second side brush 310, which rotates relative to the second shaft 313 of rotation.

[0051] the First side brush 220 may include a first holder 221 brush and lots of bristles 222 of the first brush is arranged on the holder 221 of the first brush. The second side brush 310 may include a holder 311 of the second brush and lots of bristles 312 second brush positioned on the holder 311 of the second brush.

[0052] the First node 200 side brushes can be located on the lower portion of the casing 110. Alternatively, at least one portion of the first node 200 side brushes may be located inside the housing 110, and another section of the first host 200 side slit�key may be located outside of the casing 110. For example, the first node 200 side brushes can work with the possibility of rotation.

[0053] Each of the nodes 200 and 300 of the first side brush can suck foreign substances that are present in the area corresponding to the outer part of the suction inlet 112, through the suction hole 112.

[0054] the Housing 110 may further include a second part 230 of the actuator generating power for driving the working element 210, and the second part 240 of the power transmission to transmit power from the second part 230 of the actuator on the work item 210.

[0055] furthermore, the housing 110 may further include a third portion 250 of the power transmission to transmit power of rotation of the main brush 120 to the first side of the brush 220.

[0056] Thus, the first side brush 220 receives the energy generated in the first part 150 of the actuator for rotation, and a work element 210 receives the energy generated in the second part 230 of the drive for the rotation.

[0057] furthermore, the housing 11 may further include a fourth portion 350 transmission energy to transmit power of rotation of the main brush 120 on the second side of the brush 310. However, when the second node 300 of the side brushes is eliminated, the fourth part 350 of the energy transfer can be excluded.

[0058] the First part 160 of the energy transfer and the fourth part 350 of the energy transfer can be connected to the shaft 121 of the rotation base�th brush 120. In addition, the third part 350 of the energy transfer can be connected to the shaft 121 of the rotation of the main brush 120.

[0059] Thus, when the first portion 150 of the actuator includes first and second side brushes 220 and 310 rotate together with the main brush 120. In addition, when the second part 230 of the actuator, the work item 210 can move.

[0060] Although the energy of the first portion 150 of the drive is passed to the first side of the brush 220 from main brushes 120 and third portion 250 of energy transfer in Fig. 2, the present disclosure is not limited to this. For example, the energy from the first portion 150 of the actuator can be transmitted to the first side of the brush 220 only through a third portion 250 of the energy transfer.

[0061] in addition, although the energy of the first portion 150 of the actuator is transmitted to the second side of the brush 310 from main brushes 120 and the fourth part of 350 energy transfer in Fig. 2, the present disclosure is not limited to this. For example, the energy of the first portion 150 of the actuator can be transferred to the second side of the brush 310 only through the fourth part of the 350 transmission.

[0062] the Automatic cleaner 10 may further include a portion 170 of the control that is used to control all the work, and the sensor 190 obstacles designed to identify obstacles. Part 170 controls can control the portion 142 of the drive wheel and the second part 230 of the actuator on the basis of information�, determined by the sensor 190 obstacles.

[0063] In particular, the portion 170 of the control can detect the obstacle, such as the angle on the basis of information determined by the sensor 190 obstacles. When the portion 170 of the control detects an obstacle, a portion 170 of the control may control the second part 230 of the actuator.

[0064] the Infrared sensor, ultrasonic sensor, optical sensor, etc. can be used as a sensor 190 obstacles. The current implementation option is not limited by type or number of sensors obstacles. In addition, because the sensor of the obstacle may be implemented using known technology, the detailed description will be omitted.

[0065] In Fig. 4 shows the first part of energy transfer and the fourth part of energy transfer, in accordance with a variant implementation.

[0066] In Fig. 4, the first portion 160 of the energy transfer may include a variety of gears 161, 162, 163 and 164.

[0067] In this description the toothed wheel, which initially receives power from the plurality of gears can be called a leading gear wheel, at least one toothed wheel connected with the leading toothed wheel, may be called an intermediate toothed wheel and a toothed wheel, which ultimately receives power, among the plurality of gears can be called ve�omogo gear. Here, in this description, the intermediate gear may be excluded. In addition, in this description gears, to transmit power, not limited to their type.

[0068] the Driven gear 164 of the many gear wheels 161-164 may be connected to the shaft 121 of the rotating main brushes 160. Thus, when the first driving part 150, the energy of the first driving part 150 may be transmitted to the shaft 121 of the rotation of the main brush 120 through many gears 161-164 for rotating the main brushes 120.

[0069] the Fourth part 350 energy transfer may include a variety of gears 351, 352, 353 and 354. The driven gear 351 of the many gears 351-354 may be connected to the shaft 121 main brushes 120. In another example, the leading toothed wheel 351 may be directly connected to the shaft of rotation of the first part 151 of the actuator or may be connected to one of the plurality of gear wheels 161-164, constituting the first part 160 of the energy transfer.

[0070] In Fig. 5 shows the second part of the energy transfer and the third part of energy transfer, in accordance with a variant implementation of Fig. 6 shows a perspective view with exploded view of parts of the second part of the energy transfer and the third part of energy transfer, in accordance with a variant implementation, and Fig. 7 shows a perspective view of the as�of oania, in which the second part of the energy transfer is connected with a work item, in accordance with a variant implementation.

[0071] In Fig. 5-7 shows the second part 230 of the actuator, which can be installed in the casing 110. The second part 240 of the energy transfer may include the first element 241 of the transmission connected to the shaft 231 of the rotation of the second part 230 of the actuator, and the second element 248 of the transmission attached to the first element 241 transmission and a work element 210. The second element 248 of the transmission can be directly connected to the first element 241 transfer or may be indirectly connected to the first element 241 transmission via the other transmission element.

[0072] the Portion 243 of the connection shaft connected with the shaft 231 of the rotation of the second part 230 of the actuator may be located on the first element 241 of the transmission. In addition, the first connecting joint 242 may be located on the first element 241 of the transmission. The second element 248 of the transmission can be connected rotatably with the first connecting joint 242. In another example, the first connecting joint 242 may be located on the second element 248 of the transmission, and the first element 241 of the transmission can be connected rotatably with the first connecting joint 242.

[0073] the Second connection joint 211 may be located outside of the working element 210. In addition, second� element 248 of the transmission can be connected for rotation with the second interconnecting hinge 211. As another example, the second connection joint 211 may be located on the second element 248 of the transmission, and a work element 210 may be connected for rotation with the second interconnecting hinge 211.

[0074] the Protrusion 245 may be located on the first element 241 of the transmission. Many slots 246A, 246B and 246C can be formed at some distance from each other in the protrusion 245. When I include the second part 230 of the actuator, the first element 241 of the transmission can be rotated in the same direction. As the rotation of the first element 241 transmission protrusion 245 may also be rotated together with the first element 241 of the transmission. The rotation of the protrusion 245 may be determined sensitive part 400. For example, a sensor such as a photo interrupter may be used as the sensing part 400. However, the current implementation option is not limited to the form of the sensing part 400. For example, various sensors such as a microswitch, etc., can be used in the current version of the implementation.

[0075] the Portion 170 of the control can control the second part 230 of the actuator based on the output signal of the sensing part 400 in accordance with the rotation of the protrusion 245. As part 170 controls the second part 230 of the actuator can be limited range of rotation of the working element 210. Thus, in the current vari�NTE implementation of the sensing part 400 and the protrusion 245 may be referred to as parts limit the range of rotation to limit the range of rotation of the working element 210. Here, the protrusion 245 may be located on your element 210. In this case, the range of rotation of the working element can be restricted on the basis of the output signal of the sensing part 400, in accordance with the rotation of the working element 210.

[0076] for Example, in the current version of the implementation, a set of slits may include first slits 246A, the second slot 246B and at least one third slot 46C between the first and second slots 246A and 246B.

[0077] Thus, the angle between the first and second slots 246A and 246B may be larger than the angle between the first and third slots 246A and 246C.

[0078] in addition, when the sensing part 400 determines each of the slots 246A, 246B and 246C, it outputs a signal A. on the other hand, when the sensing part 400 determines the protrusion 245 may be output signal B is different from the signal A.

[0079] in addition, when the second part 230 of the actuator, and then the sensing part 400 determines one of the slots 246A, 246B and 246C, the second module actuator 230 can be turned off.

[0080] for Example, the sensing part 400 may be in a state defining a first slot 246A before turning on the second part 230 of the actuator. When I include the second part of the actuator 230, the protrusion 245 may be rotated together with the first element 241 of the transmission. When the sensing part 400 determines a second slot 246B after ODA�division third slot 246C during the rotation of the protrusion 245, the second part 230 of the actuator can be switched off.

[0081] In another example, when the sensing part 400 determines a third slot 246c, the second part 230 of the actuator can be switched off, in accordance with the presence or absence of obstacles on the corner or in accordance with the corner shape.

[0082] Thus, the rotation angle of the protrusion 245 may be changed in accordance with the number of slots 246A - 246C. Thus, if the phase of the working element 210 is in the first position when the sensing portion 400 defines a first slot 246A, and the position of the working element 210 is in the second position when the sensing part 400 determines a second slot 246B, the work item 210 can move between the first position and the second position. Alternatively, the work item 210 may stop at a point between the first and second positions.

Thus, it is possible to adjust the angle of rotation of the working element 210.

[0083] In another example, the slots 246A - 246C may not be formed on the protrusion 245. In this case, when the sensing part 400 determines the protrusion 245 may be output signal A. in addition, when the sensing part 400 determines the protrusion 245 may be injected signal B. for Example, the state before executing the work for the second part 230 of the actuator, can be a condition in which sensitivity�th part 400 determines the protrusion 245.

[0084] in addition, when the second part of the actuator 230, the protrusion 245 may be rotated together with the first element 241 of the transmission. In addition, the work item 210 is rotated in one direction (the first direction, i.e. the direction in which the work item 210 is removed from the casing) as a result of rotation of the first element 241 of the transmission. When the protrusion 245 is rotated, the sensing part 400 determines a protrusion 245. In addition, when the protrusion 245 is not defined sensitive part 400, in determining the sensitive part 400 protrusion 245, the second part 230 of the actuator can be switched off.

[0085] By means of the projection 245 and the sensing part 400 may be determined, normally rotates the work item. This will be described below with reference to the accompanying drawings.

[0086] the Third part 250 energy transfer may include a variety of gears 251, 252, 253, 254, 255, 260 and 261. Leading gear wheel 251 of the many gears 251-261 can be connected to the shaft 121 of the rotation of the main brush 120. As another example, the leading toothed wheel 251 may be connected to the shaft of rotation of the first part 150 of the actuator.

[0087] In the current embodiment of the multiple belts 256 and 262 may be further provided to reduce the number of gears.

[0088] in More detail, the leading toothed wheel 251 may be Conn�NENO with the first intermediate gear 252, and the first intermediate gear 252 may be connected with the second intermediate gear wheel 253. The second intermediate gear wheel 253 may be connected with the third intermediate gear wheel 254. The first belt 256 may connect the third intermediate gear 254 with the fourth intermediate gear wheel 255. In addition, the leading toothed wheel 251, the first to fourth intermediate gears 252-255 and the first belt 256 can be located inside enclosures 257 and 258 gear.

[0089] the Fourth intermediate gear wheel 255 may be connected coaxially with the fifth intermediate gear wheel 260. In addition, the fifth intermediate gear wheel 260 and the driven gear wheel 261 may be connected to each other by a second belt 262. In addition, the driven gear wheel 261 may be connected with a second side brush 220. Here, the shaft of the gear of the driven gear wheel 261 may be used as a rotation shaft of the second side brush 220, or the shaft 223 of the second rotation side brushes 220 may be connected to the slave gear wheel 261.

[0090] the Fifth intermediate gear wheel 260, the driven gear 261 and the second strap 262 may be located inside the operating element 210. In addition, the work item 210 may further include a lid 212.

[0091] the Hole h�RES which takes place the fourth intermediate gear wheel 255, can be formed in the cover 212. In addition, the connecting part 213 is connected rotatably with the housing 257 and 258 gear, may be disposed around the openings 214 in the cover 212. Thus, the connecting portion 213 may be used as the shaft of rotation of a working element 210.

[0092] the Current implementation option is not limited to the number and shape of the gears constituting the third part 250 of energy transfer. In addition, many of the belts 256 and 262 may be excluded in the third part 250 of energy transfer.

[0093] Fig. 8 shows a block diagram of the sequence of operations illustrating a method to control automatic cleaner, in accordance with a variant implementation, and Fig. 9 is a view illustrating the operating status of the first node side of the brush. Here, in Fig. 9A and 10A, showing views illustrating a state in which the first node side of the brush is in normal mode, and Fig. 9B and 10B shows views illustrating a state in which the first node side of the brush operates in the cleaning mode of the angle.

[0094] Fig. 8-10 automatic cleaner is included to clean the surface that requires cleaning (for example, a floor surface), using an automatic cleaner (S1).

[0095] After enabling automatic cleaner, automatic cleaner may also be automatically�key to operate normally or work in normal mode when the start command is received (S2).

[0096] In the normal mode auto cleaner auto cleaner performs a cleaning, moving through the driving module.

[0097] In the normal mode, the first portion 150 of the drive is enabled. When the first portion 150 of the actuator is enabled, the energy from the first portion 150 of the actuator can be transferred to the main brush 120 from the first part 160 of the energy transfer. Thus, the main brush 120 can rotate.

[0098] in addition, the energy from the first portion 150 of the actuator can be transferred to the first side brush third part 220 250 energy transfer and can be transferred to the second side brush 310 fourth part 350 transmission. Thus, the first and second side brushes 220 and 310 can be rotated. For example, in Fig. 9A and 10B, the first side brush 220 is rotated in the direction A.

[0099] while the automatic cleaner 10 operates in the normal mode, the part 170 determines, whether recognized angle (S3 and S4). In more detail, part 170 determines whether the automatic cleaner 10 movement, following the wall (wall defines), or determine lateral obstacle (S3). The movement route of the wall can represent the fact that the automatic cleaner moves along the wall.

[00100] if the movement along the wall, or defined in a side of an obstacle can be determined on the basis of Jn�ormatie, determined by the sensor 190 obstacles.

[00101] After determining that the automatic cleaner 10 performs a movement along the wall, or determine lateral obstacle (or side wall), part 170, the control can determine whether the obstacle in front (the front wall) (S4). In General, as the angle may correspond to the area on which the multiple dimensions (without limitation), meet each other, part 150 determines that defines the angle in the case where the determined wall or the side and front surfaces.

[00102] When determined that the determined angle when performing operations S3 and S4, part 170 controls the automatic cleaner 10 so that the automatic cleaner 10 performs a cleaning mode angle (S5).

[00103] In the cleaning mode, corner portion 170 includes the second part 230 of the actuator. When the second part 230 of the drive is enabled, the work item 210 may move from a state (first position) in Fig. 9A in a state (second position) in Fig. 9B (can be rotated). When the work item 210 is rotated, the shaft 223 of the first rotation of the side brushes 220 may move in a horizontal direction. In addition, the second part 230 of the actuator is switched off in the state when the work item 210 is rotated by a specified angle.

[00104] If the operation type of the first I�La side brush (or work item) in the normal mode, in accordance with the current version of the implementation, is called the first type, operation type (including position and working structure) of the first node side of the brush (or work item) in the cleaning mode, the angle can be called the second type. In addition, the first node side of the brush can be changed from the first type to the second type in the cleaning mode, corner.

[00105] in More detail, when the second portion 230 of the drive is enabled, the first element 241 gears spinning. When the first element 241 of the transmission rotates the first connecting joint 242, located on the first element 241 transmission, can move. When first connecting joint 242 moves the second element 248 of the transmission can move, and thus, the second connection joint 211 can move as a result of the movement of the second element 248 of the transfer. Therefore, the work item 210 can be rotated second connecting hinge 211.

[00106] As described above, the first type of the first node side of the brush can be a condition in which a work element 210 is retracted (that is, the working element 210 is in the first position), and the second type of the first node side of the brush can be a condition in which a work element 210 is advanced and then stopped (that is, the working element 210 is in the second position).

[00107] for Example, plot raboteg� element 210 may be located inside the housing 110, and then the work item 210 may protrude outward beyond the casing 110 as a result of its rotation. Thus, the work item 210 may protrude outward from the housing 110 as a result of its rotation from a state in which the work item 210 is covered by the casing 110, as shown in Fig. 9A. When the working element 210 extends outward from the housing 110 as a result of its rotation, the overlay vertically between the working element 210 and the housing 110 may be reduced compared to its condition before the work item 210 made out from the casing 110.

[00108] When the working element 210 is rotated, advancing outward from the housing 110 is in the cleaning mode of the angle, because the first side brush 220, located on the working element 210, is located near a corner can effectively be cleared corner.

[00109] In another example, in the cleaning mode, the angle, the second type of the first node 200 of the side brush Assembly may include a process in which the work item 210 repeatedly changes its position from the first position to the second position and from the second position to the first position. Thus, the work item 210 may be repeatedly moved between the first position and the second position. In this case, the second part 230 of the actuator include so that it worked in one direction, and then turn off. Then the second� part of the actuator 230: back to work in the other direction, and then they turn it off. Here, the above-described processes can be executed multiple times.

[00110] the Process in which the working element 210 moves from the first position into the second position and then stops or moves from the second position to the first position can be accomplished by means of above the sensing part 400 and the protrusion 245.

[00111] furthermore, the driving module can be maintained in a stopped state in the cleaning mode, corner.

[00112] Next, part 170 determines whether the cleared corner (S6). For example, it is determined that the angle is completely cleaned, when the time during which the operation of the first node side of the brush 200 is changed exceeds a reference time, the number of revolutions of the first side brush (or the second part of the actuator) exceeds the reference number after you change the operation type of the first node 200 of the side brushes, the operation of the second part of the actuator exceeds a reference time, or the amount of change type operations exceeds the reference number.

[00113] alternatively, determining whether the cleared corner, can be performed on the basis of the sensor to determine the state of purification. For example, if the cleared corner, can be determined on the basis of the angle images taken with the camera, or be determined by the amount of dust sucked through the suction hole, used� sensor. The present disclosure is not limited to methods of determining degree of treatment of angle.

[00114] In accordance with a result determined in the operation S6, when it is determined that the angle is completely cleared, the automatic cleaner 10 is working again in normal mode. Thus, the operation type of the first node side of the brush can be changed from the second type to the first type.

[00115] In accordance with the variants of implementation, when changing the operation type of the first node side of the brush during the cleaning angle, the angle can be effectively cleared the first node side of the brush. In addition, can be prevented damage to the first side of the brush, and eliminates the inconvenience of storing the first node side of the brush.

[00116] Fig. 11 shows a block diagram of the sequence of operations illustrating a method of controlling an automatic cleaner in accordance with the normal rotation of the first side of the brush, in accordance with a variant implementation.

[00117] As shown in Fig. 11, include automatic cleaner for cleaning a surface, intended to clean (for example, a floor surface), using an automatic cleaner (S11). After you enable automatic cleaner automatic cleaner can automatically operate normally or work in normal mode after entering the command triggering�a (S12). In normal mode the automatic cleaner automatic cleaner performs a cleaning, moving through the driving module.

[00118] Because the first portion 150 of the drive is enabled in the normal mode, the main brush 120 and the first and second side brushes 220 and 310 rotate.

[00119] while the automatic cleaner 10 operates in the normal mode, the part 170 determines, whether recognized angle (S13 and S14). In more detail, part 170 determines whether the automatic cleaner 10 movement, following the wall (defines the surface of the wall), or determine lateral obstacle (S13). Movement, following the wall, you can imagine that the automatic cleaner moves along the wall.

[00120] if the movement, following the wall, or defined in a side of an obstacle can be determined on the basis of information determined by the sensor 190 obstacles.

[00121] After determining that the automatic cleaner 10 performs the movement, following the wall, or defined in a lateral obstacle (or side wall), part 170, the control may determine whether the front obstacle (or front wall) (S14). In General, as the angle may correspond to the phase in which the set of planes (without limitation), meet each other, part 150 determines that the detected angle in the case, when it was determined the wall or the side and front surfaces.

[00122] When determined that the detected angle in operations S13 and S14, part 170 includes the second part 230 of the actuator (S15).

[00123] When the second part 230 of the actuator is enabled, the first transmission element connected with the second part 230 of the actuator can rotate. When the first element 241 of the transmission rotates, the protrusion 245 may also be rotated together with the first element 241 of the transmission. Thus, the sensing part 400 may determine the rotation of the protrusion 245. When the protrusion 245 is rotated, the work item 210 may also be rotated.

[00124] Thus, part 170 determines that it works normally work item 210, on the basis of information in respect of the protrusion 245 defined sensitive part 400 (S16).

[00125] in More detail, the sensing part 400 may define a first slot 246A protrusion 245. This is done because the second part 230 of the actuator is switched off in the state when it is determined by the first slot 246A protrusion 245. Then, when the second portion 230 of the actuator is enabled when the rotation of the protrusion 245, the sensing part 400 may define a first slot 246A. When the first slot 246A is determined continuously, or third, or second slot 246C, or 246B are not defined, until then, until a specified time after turning on the second part 230 when�ode, part 170 of management may determine that the work item 210 is not working properly. On the other hand, when the second part 230 of the drive is enabled, and then determined the third or second slot or 246C 246C, until then, until after a specified time, part 170 of management may determine that the work item 210 is operating normally.

[00126] In the current embodiment of the case when the work item 210 is not working properly, can be a case in which the energy of the second part 230 of the actuator is not transmitted smoothly to the working element 210 through the second part 240 energy transfer (internal factor), or a case where a work item 210 does not rotate due to obstacles outside of the automatic cleaner 10 despite the fact that the energy of the second portion 230 of the actuator is smoothly transmitted to the working element 210 through the second portion 240 of the energy transfer.

[00127] In another example, when the slit is not provided on the protrusion 245, the state before switching the second part 230 of the actuator can be a condition in which the sensing portion 40 defines a protrusion 245. In addition, when the second part 230 of the actuator is enabled, the sensing portion 245 can be rotated and also to determine the protrusion 245. When the second part 230 of the drive is enabled, and then the sensing part 400 determines the protrusion 245, or the protrusion 245 is constantly Oprah�by, until a specified time, part 170 of management may determine that the work item 210 is not functioning properly.

[00128] According to the result determined during the operation S16, when the working element 210 operates normally, the automatic cleaner 10 performs a cleaning mode angle (S17).

[00129] In the cleaning mode, the angle of the automatic cleaner 10 clears the angle in a state where the automatic cleaner 10 is stopped.

[00130] Then part 170 determines whether the purified angle (S18). For example, determine that the angle is completely cleaned, when the time, during which time the work of the first node side of the brush 200 is changed exceeds a reference time, the number of revolutions of the first side brush (or the second part of the actuator) exceeds the reference number after you change the operation type of the first node 200 of the side brushes, the operation of the second part of the actuator exceeds a reference time, or the amount of change type of operations exceeds the reference number.

[00131] alternatively, if the angle is completely cleared, can be determined on the basis of the sensor to determine the state of purification. For example, it may be determined whether the purified angle based on the angle images taken with the camera, or it may be determined by the amount of dust sucked through the suction hole using a sensor. The present disclosure is not about�ranchero means for determining, fully cleared the corner.

[00132] In accordance with a result defined during the operation S18, when it is determined that the angle is completely cleared, the automatic cleaner 10 is working again in normal mode. Thus, the operation type of the first node side of the brush can be changed from the second type to the first type.

[00133] on the other hand, in accordance with the result identified during the operation S16, when the working element 210 operates abnormally, part 170 performs control control bypass restrictions (S19). Thus, the portion 170 of management mainly manages the second part 230 of the actuator so that the working element 210 is rotated in the other direction (the second direction in which the insert casing). For example, when the working element 210 is retracted to the desired position, the operating element 210 is inserted. Then the part 170 control again drives a second part 230 of the actuator so that the working element 210 is rotated in one direction (the first direction).

[00134] a portion 170 of control again determines that it works normally work item (S20). If the work item 210 is operating normally, the process proceeds to operation S17 to perform a cleaning angle.

[00135] on the other hand, the result is determined at operation S20, when the working element 210 operates abnormally, part 170 is administered�I managing part 142 of the drive wheels (drive module) thus, the automatic cleaner 10 bypasses the angle (S21). For example, the automatic cleaner 10 can move in the opposite direction from this provision and may then change direction away from the corner. In addition, part 170 controls the second part 230 of the actuator so that the working element 210 is in the inserted condition. Here, the result is determined in operation S20, when the working element 210 operates abnormally, the error information may be displayed on a display module (not shown). In addition, information regarding the position (angle) in which the error occurred may be stored in a memory card (not shown).

[00136] Then, the automatic cleaner 10 again performs the normal operation. The automatic cleaner 10 can move in the position error stored in the map, after cleaning, in the normal mode for a repeated execution of the cleaning mode of the angle.

[00137] In this variant implementation, since the control of the bypass restriction is performed when the work item 210 operates abnormally during cleaning corner cleaning performance angle can be improved. In addition, since the error information is displayed when you are not on the clearance angle, the user can confirm the state of automationssysteme or a condition of an angle.

[00138] Although embodiments of described with reference to numerous illustrative variants of its implementation, it should be understood that numerous other modifications and embodiments can be devised by a person skilled in the art, which fall within the essence and scope of the principles of the present disclosure. More specifically, there are different variations and modifications in the component parts and/or assemblies for layouts and combinations of subjects within the scope of the disclosure, drawings and appended claims. In addition to variations and modifications in the component parts and/or configurations, alternative uses will also be apparent to a person skilled in the art.
