Convenient VIRTUAL GUARD Function
You can confine the robotic vacuum cleaner to a particular section by using the Fence (virtual
wall) mode or by cleaning several sections one by one using the Guard (virtual door) mode.
• What is ceiling shape recognition
(Visionary mappingTM)?
This function recognizes the shape of
the ceiling using the camera on top
to identify the area to be cleaned and
determines the best way to pass over
and clean every section of the floor.
Delicate Cleaning of Every Corner
Since the robotic vacuum cleaner cleans the floor in a sequential way ( ) along the map
determined by the ceiling shape recognition function, it cleans every corner of the floor.
Various Cleaning Modes
Various cleaning modes are provided to meet all your needs.

4. Manual Mode
You can clean the floor manually by moving the
robotic vacuum cleaner with a remote control.
5. Edge Mode
When the Obstacle Sensor detects an obstacle
during the cleaning, the Robot Cleaner reduces
its speed to minimize the bumping impact and
the Bumper Sensor also helps it lower the
bumping impact. And, it cleans the corners by
reaching to them as close as possible.
6. Scheduled Cleaning Mode

hen using the robotic vacuum cleaner in a small location or at a close distance,
it may malfunction due to interference of the infrared signals.
• Install the VIRTUAL GUARD away from the charger as auto charging may be
interrupted if the VIRTUAL GUARD is near the charger.
• If the fence length is set to a value longer than the required distance, the robotic
vacuum cleaner may fail to clean properly.
Set the fence length to an appropriate value using the distance control switch.
• If more than one robotic vacuum is used simultaneously, they may malfunction
due to interference of the infrared signals.
• Turn the VIRTUAL GUARD in another direction or set the fence length to an
appropriate value if the distance detection sensor of the VIRTUAL GUARD faces

• Check the installation of the charger
- When the charger is in a location where the charger
cannot guide the robotic vacuum cleaner to the
charger.
- When the charger is more than 5m away from robotic
vacuum cleaner.
: It may require a longer time for the robotic vacuum
cleaner to return to the charger.
• Manually charge the robotic vacuum cleaner in the following
cases.
- When the charger is installed in a corner.
- When the battery is fully discharged.
- When the robotic vacuum cleaner is trapped by an
obstacle (furniture etc.)
- When the robotic vacuum cleaner cannot pass over the
doorsill to the location where the charger is installed.
(The height of the doorsill should be about 1cm or less).
