Abstract

Some aspects include a method including: generating, with a processor of the robot, a map of the workspace; segmenting, with the processor of the robot, the map into a plurality of zones; transmitting, with the processor of the robot, the map to an application of a communication device; receiving, with the application, the map; displaying, with the application, the map; receiving, with the application, at least one input for the map; implementing, with the application, the at least one input into the map to generate an updated map of the workspace; transmitting, with the application, the updated map to the processor of the robot; receiving, with the processor of the robot, the updated map; generating, with the processor of the robot, a movement path based on the map or the updated map; and actuating, with the processor of the robot, the robot to traverse the movement path.
