Precautions when teaching a Cleaning Route

Be sure to do the following before teaching a cleaning route.

  • Always carry out an inspection before operating the machine (⇒see “Inspection before Operating the Machine”).
  • Do not bring the machine too close to a wall when teaching a cleaning route.
  • As the machine may detect nearby persons as objects, do not stand in front of the sensor. Create cleaning routes at a time when few persons are around.
  • Do not use the machine where there is direct sunlight, where there is strong lighting or near devices that emit infrared light (heaters, etc.). Doing so may affect its autonomous cleaning function.
  • When teaching a cleaning route, move the machine forward.
    *Reverse movement will not be recognized as a cleaning route.
  • The machine will push against thin mats that slide easily and may damage the mat or brush. Remove any mats before teaching a cleaning route.
  • Floors with an uneven, rough surface can cause cliff sensor errors during auto cleaning. As bumpy floors may be recognized as obstacles, avoid cleaning rough surface floors.
  • A passageway of more than 80 cm (32 inches) in width is needed in order for Whiz to operate autonomously at an optimum speed. *If the width of the passageway is below 80 cm (32 inches), the machine may recognize an obstacle and the speed may decrease or the machine may stop.
  • When operating several machines, their sensors may interfere with each other.
  • When operating the machine in the presence of "people movers" (stairs, escalators, moving walkways, elevators, etc.) additional precautions are required (⇒see “Handling People Movers”)
