Title:
CHARGING APPARATUS
Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2019/135590
Kind Code:
A1
Abstract:
A charging apparatus of the present invention comprises: a main body in which a charging electrode for charging a robot cleaner is provided; a sensing unit for sensing that the robot cleaner is docked to the main body, and the robot cleaner is electrically connected to the charging electrode; a power supply unit for supplying charging current to the charging electrode; a measuring unit for measuring the magnitude of the charging current provided to the robot cleaner; and a MICOM for recognizing whether the robot cleaner has been docked, on the basis of information on the magnitude of the charging current measured in the measuring unit. When the measured magnitude of the charging current is less than the magnitude of a set current, the MICOM transmits a first setting signal to the robot cleaner, and on the basis of whether a second setting signal corresponding to the first setting signal is received, checks whether the robot cleaner has been docked.
