The robot uses an updated Laser Distance Sensor (LDS), which rotates 360 degrees. LIDAR is responsible for navigation, an interference detection sensor is located on the front of the mechanical bumper, and the charging contacts are visible from the rear.

You will find two buttons on the top of the device – The Power button which allows you to start or pause the robot, and the Home button which forces it back to the charging base. The dust collector is located under the top cover as you can see. The filtration system is based on a HEPA filter. The water tank (250 ml) is attached to the bottom of the housing.
