The basic is infrared navigation, it can help robot vacuum to avoide the barriers. The very widely used is Gyroscope Navigation, it can support machine to clean with smart route & generate cleaning map. The less use is Visual Camera Navigation, because the technology is not mature enough & the cost is very high, there are very few manufacturer will use this technology. The most popular & powerful is Laser Navigation, it will be more intelligent, not only can generate the real time map, but only support customer to do the zone cleaning.
Some vacuum robots don’t has water tank, so it just can do dry mopping; Some only has leaking water tank, so it can make wet & dry mopping; some are equipped with smart water tank, its Intelligent electronical water tank for this model, control water flow through APP stop water when machine stop, or in charging station.
