Cleaning Algorithm

Do not expect a robot vacuum to see the way humans see and move the way we would! bObsweep has his own algorithms. Here is a video that demonstrates the cleaning algorithm bObsweep robot vacuum cleaner follows to map the room and clean the house:

You have three options to set bObsweep to clean the house:
Auto-cleaning mode: In this mode bObsweep cleans until his battery falls below 15% and then starts looking for its charge-up station. Simply press AUTO on the remote or press PLAY/START button on the robot vacuum.

30-minute timed cleaning mode: In this mode bObsweep works for 30 minutes; this is enough time for cleaning a large area like a living room or a studio. To put Bob in this mode, press the PROGRAM button (it's the second button from left on bObsweep). 

15-minute timed cleaning mode: If you like bObsweep to clean a bedroom, kitchen, or bathroom, you can put him to clean in this mode. Press PROGRAM button until the number 3 shows on the screen; press START button. 

Here is a video demo that explains the whole thing. The video features bObsweep; with the comparison figures above, it should not be hard to figure out how to do the same thing on a bObsweep PetHair robot vacuum cleaner.  

Spot Cleaning

Your robot vacuum cleaner can work in two spot cleaning modes: 
  • Spiral 
  • ZigZag
To put bObsweep into each spot cleaning mode, press MODE button on the screen. Mode 1 is the spiral mode and Mode 2 is the zigzag mode, simple as that! Still not sure what to do? Help yourself to a video demo of Bob's spot cleaning modes:
