What is teach and repeat and how does it help the FX250 perform better?
The teach and repeat cleaning mode allows the user to manually drive the FX250 in any desired route and add that path to the task list for autonomous completion. The path can be as long or as short as necessary and can involve both sharp turns and extended straightaways. It will be most useful in a space that contains a lot of furniture or a unique architectural design that may make it difficult for the FX250 to maneuver without the sensors halting the process.
What is the process to teach and repeat?
The user will engage the Teach and Repeat mode on the User Interface. The user will then use the joystick to drive the FX250 in any desired pattern for as long as necessary. This path can then be added to the task list along with other task areas and taught paths. The FX250 will repeat the path once, but can be added to the task list as many times as needed.
What kind of paths can be created using teach and repeat?
Any shape, path, or pattern that the user may desire can be taught to the FX250 to be repeated during cleaning. If an obstacle comes across the path that the user created, the FX250 may deviate in order to safely continue.
