In its auto cleaning mode, the robot uses an automatic sequence of cleaning patterns to clean each area of the room optimally. The cleaning patterns it uses are:
- Z-pattern or zigzag pattern
- Random pattern
- Wall-following pattern
- Spiral pattern
During auto cleaning, the robot uses these patterns in a fixed sequence: The Z-pattern, followed by the random pattern; The wall-following pattern, followed by the spiral pattern. When the robot has completed this sequence of patterns, it starts moving in Z-pattern again. The robot continues to use this sequence of patterns to clean the room until the rechargeable battery has run down, or until it has been switched off manually.
If the robot detects a particularly dirty area during its cleaning run, it switches to spiral mode to ensure thorough dirt removal. You can also select each mode individually by pressing the appropriate button on the remote control (FC8710 only).
