This guide will explain the hardware and software setup of the floor type detection for robotic vacuum applications. Using a Chirp sensor module, the floor type detection setup can distinguish between a hard and soft floor surface such as a hardwood floor and carpet. Using the GUI, real-time numerical data can be recorded and viewed in plot form. Using automatic parameter settings, a demo of hard and soft floor detection can be demonstrated with proper mounting, the evaluation kit setup and inputting the floor distance. For a more refined demonstration, custom parameter settings can be used.
