User Guide
Parking Brake
The HydroBot Floor Scrubber has a parking brake that
can be engaged from the rear of the robot (see red
handle). Pivoting the red handle to the left locks the
parking brake, moving it to the right releases the parking
Note: The robot will not move when the parking
brake is engaged.
The HydroBot Hands-Free Floor Scrubber has a 4stage filtering system, providing filtering to 10, 5, or
1 micron(s), utilizing a 15-gallon polyethylene tank. It
can run for 8 consecutive hours without changing
solution. The tank should be drained, rinsed and
cleaned at the end of every work shift. This will
ensure the tank remains clean and free of bacteria.
Brush Head Assembly
The brush head assembly is made from powdercoated stainless steel. The assembly utilizes dual 24
VDC, 0.75 HP, 200 RPM, direct-drive, permanent,
magnet motors. The two counter-rotating brushes
or pads yield a 29” scrubbing width. Depending on
the floor surface, the unit can accommodate various
abrasive grades of pads.
User Guide
Squeegee Assembly
The HydroBot Floor Scrubber utilizes a 36-inch
squeegee with a four-edge, reversible, gum-rubber
blade coupled with a vacuum that collects water
dispensed by the machine. The squeegee coverage
width is 34.5”. Squeegee blades are removable so
they can be cleaned or reversed to provide more
service time. It is recommended that squeegee
blades be replaced at least every 12 weeks to avoid
excessive noise and avoid the potential of leaving
water (due to worn squeegee blades).
Battery Charging
Gel cell batteries provide approximately four hours of
operation per charge. They are highly reliable and
do not require a vented room (they do not emit
fumes while recharging). Intellibot Robotics offers,
as an accessory, a battery exchange kit. This
system is designed to allow the operator to
exchange the battery pack when low on charge.
Battery Charging Plug
Only 24-volt chargers with a gel cell setting should
be used to ensure the batteries do not overheat.
Using any other charger may cause damage to the
batteries. Charge each battery pack for a continuous
18 hours. The HydroBot automatically powers off
when the battery-charging plug is inserted.

User Guide
Sonar Diagnostic
This diagnostic shows the distance measured by the selected sonar sensor from the sensor
face to the object in front of it, looking down from on top of the machine. The distance is
displayed in millimeters. There are between 15 and 19 sonars on a machine depending upon
the model. Each sonar has a number from 0 to 23.
Using the up “A” and down “B” buttons select the sonar of interest to view the distance it is
measuring. The sonar number “C” and distance “D” will be displayed, along with a sound wave
animation “E” showing where the sonar is located on the machine.
The sound waves from sonar sensors fan out so the sonar may detect objects that are not
directly in front of them. Also, the sonar sensors have a dead zone where they cannot detect an
object. The dead zone is the first 6 inches from the face of the sonar.
When a sonar number is gray, and the distance is reported as “----“, the sonar is not receiving
an echo and therefore cannot measure a distance.
If a number is skipped over, for example when going from sonar #6 to #8 and #7 doesn’t
appear, then sonar #7 is not installed on your machine.. Long-range sonars are #7 and #10.
Short-range sonars are #17 and #20. Both types are specific to a specific machine model.
If the proximity board software version number ”F” looks like ----, it means that the computer
cannot communicate with the proximity board. To exit the diagnostic and return to the
Diagnostics main screen, touch “Return” “G.”
User Guide
Touchshield Diagnostic
This diagnostic shows if the machine is contacting an object. The touchshield is the plastic skirt
that wraps around the lower perimeter of the machine, about 6” off the floor. Behind the plastic
are contact sensors that will notify the computer if the machine is applying more than 24 oz. of
force against an object.
Each of the 6 zones “A” has two zone contact counters associated with them. The white
numbers “B” are the total number of times that that zone has detected contact since the
machine was installed. The orange numbers “C” are the number of times that a zone has
detected contact since this diagnostic was most recently started. Each time the diagnostic is
run, the orange numbers reset to 0.
Touch the reset button “D” to manually reset the orange numbers to 0.
When a zone detects contact, the zone on the machine icon lights up “E,” both the total and
current contact counters increase, and the machine beeps.
To exit the diagnostic and return to the Diagnostics main screen, touch “Return” “F.”
User Guide
Floor Sensor Diagnostic
This diagnostic shows if each of the four floor sensors can detect the floor. The sensors use
infrared light to illuminate the floor and detect the reflection from it. A distance is reported to the
computer. If the distance exceeds a pre-set number it is assumed that there is no floor and the
machine responds with an appropriate safety action.
Each of the four sensors “A” reports a distance in millimeters “B” and a voltage “C” that the
sensor is reporting. When the distance to the floor is measured as safe, the number is in green.
When no floor is detected the number is red.
Note: The infrared floor sensors can be misled when the machine is over black shiny surfaces. If
this happens, the machine will pause and a message will be displayed on the touchscreen.
Example “No Floor: Right Front. If floor is present, manually drive machine past dark flooring
and continue.
To exit the diagnostic and return to the Diagnostics main screen, touch “Return” “D.”

Gyro Diagnostic
This diagnostic shows the relative heading of the machine. The gyro senses the machine
turning and calculates the heading. When the diagnostic starts, the heading is reset to 0°.
There is a compass-style instrument that points to the current heading and a reading of the
heading in degrees and hundredths of a degree “A.” A negative heading means the machine is
pointed slightly right of center, a positive heading means the machine is pointed slightly left of
There are two buttons to slowly rotate the machine to test the gyro. Pressing the left arrow “B”
will rotate the machine in a clockwise direction. Pressing the right arrow “C” will rotate the
machine in a counterclockwise direction. To stop rotating, press the arrow button opposite of
the direction of rotation.
There are two parameters for calibrating a gyro. One is the Scale Factor “D” and is set at the
factory. It does not normally need to be changed. Values normally range from 18500 to 20500.
The other parameter is the Center value “E.” This is computed automatically by the machine
every time there is no motion for at least 5 seconds. This value is ideally 4192, but will change
based on variations in gyro hardware, temperature changes, and other factors. If this number is
more then 5000 or less then 3000, there is likely a problem with the gyro and it may need to be
Touch the reset button “F” to set the heading to 0.00° during the diagnostic.
To exit the diagnostic and return to the Diagnostics main screen, touch “Return “G.”
User Guide
Camera Diagnostic
This diagnostic will only appear on machines that have a camera installed on the right front
corner of the front door. Most machines do not have this sensor.
This diagnostic shows what lines on the floor the camera detects, based upon the contrast
between the line and the floor color. For the camera to accurately detect a line there must be
adequate even lighting.
Touching the camera button “A” will take a picture that will be processed to look for a line. If the
machine beeps 3 times, the picture capture did not work. Touch the camera button again. If it
beeps once, the image capture was successful.
If there is adequate lighting and contrast, lines “B” found will be displayed on the image. For an
ideal application, either the H-scan or V-scan pair of values of n and ae must be valid. Valid
values of n “C” will be greater than 10 and ae “D” will be less than 5. If they are not, the
application will not be able to use the camera for navigation in that area.
There are 6 buttons “E” available to turn off and on the various pieces of line data that were
detected and computed. These may be helpful in understanding why a line might not be
detected or giving bad position information.
To exit the diagnostic and return to the Diagnostics main screen, touch return “F.”

Drive Motor Diagnostic
This diagnostic shows the speed of each of the drive wheels. It may be used when calibrating
the drive amplifiers. The machine may be propped up so that the drive wheels are off the
ground, but can also be used with the wheels on the ground, which requires the use of the
handlebar to turn the wheels.
The green Status dots “A” on either side will turn red if the amplifier on that side has a fault
status or if the fuse is blown.
The up “B” and down “C” buttons step the Command speed through: -400, -300, -200, -100, -75,
-50, -25, 0, 25, 50, 75, 100, 200, 300, 400 mm/s. The machine cleans at 400 mm/s.
When the Command speed “D” is set to 0, Anti-drift “E” on (yellow button) keeps the two wheels
at the same position. Turn off Anti-drift by touching the button to see how much each wheel
continues to spin even when commanded to not move, which is useful for calibrating the drive
Touching either of the Audible buttons “F” the machine will beep faster as the Average speed
“G” for that side gets closer to the Command speed. The beeps stop if the speeds are within
2mm/s. This is also useful for calibrating the drive amplifiers.
