Sensing solution for robots
Robots such as robotic vacuum cleaners or social robots can make our lives more convenient, leaving time for more important things in life. These smart helpers however need to work reliably and efficiently to ensure peace of mind for the end user. This means, they need to navigate effortlessly around objects, detect boundaries of a room and create a paths for productive cleaning. Features such as automatic charging increases users' comfort, since the robotic vacuum cleaner automatically returns to its charging station when the battery gets empty. Moreover, innovative applications such as detecting gases helps the robot to avoid spreading spilled liquids or leftovers on the floor. Finally, detecting smells and generating air quality maps enables indoor air quality measurement, improving people's well-being. All these applications are enabled by Bosch Sensortec sensors and software.
