Document Type and Number:
WIPO Patent Application WO/2012/138204
Kind Code:
A3
Abstract:
The present invention pertains to a robot cleaner. In the configuration of the robot cleaner, a dust case is mounted by magnetic force such that the magnetic force can be sensed, a rag-mounting structure is provided such that whether or not a rag is mounted is sensed so as to restrain the same, infrared sensing modules are provided at both sides of a driven wheel, and infrared floodlight sections are formed on the driven wheel at a uniform interval. Therefore, the dust case according to the present invention is mounted by magnetic force and the magnetic force is sensed, so that the configuration is simplified and manufacturing costs are reduced. In addition, the rag-mounting structure is provided such that the mounting of the rag holder is sensed so as to restrain the same while mounting the rag holder, such that the robot cleaner is prevented from moving to a cushioned area such as a carpet where the rag holder may get stuck. Therefore, a malfunction due to the rag holder does not occur.
