Mapping guide

The navigation-system needs to be configured by the user. Only the user has access to the areas and locations where the robot needs to be able to navigate.

The following steps should be taken when creating a map:

1. Set up the charging station (with enough free space)


For more information on the required setup, see the related manual here

2. Dock the robot with the powered charging station and turn it on

3. Connect ZBOS Control to the robot and create a new map

A 'charging station' POI will be added automatically.

4. Navigate the robot around the map

Make sure the option 'Scanning mode' is selected.
Remove any obstacles out of the way before scanning to create a large enough 'clear' area for the robot to navigate.

Move the robot using the manual controls in the Localisation-page around the map to gradually fill the map.


5. Save the map once the map is filled in

The Navigation mode will now be enabled.
It is highly recommended to save a duplicate of the map once the mapping has been completed.

6. Add the POIs and virtual walls to the map

See the chapters Adding POIs and Adding virtual walls for more information.

7. Save the map again

Save the map again to add the POIs and walls to the stored map.
