AN-000349 – Application User Guide for Floor Type Detection and Cliff Detection for Robotic Vacuums

This guide will explain the software and hardware setup of the floor type detection and cliff detection for robotic vacuum applications using two CH101 or ICU-10201 sensors. Floor type detection is the differentiation between hard floors (hardwood, tile, etc) and soft floors (carpets). Cliff detection is the detection of a cliff, such as an overhanging ledge, stairs, or other similar risk to a Robotic Vacuum Cleaner (RVC).

For clarity and simplicity, unless otherwise specified, any information referring to the CH101 in this document will also apply to the ICU-10201.
