Manual work is taken over the robot technology and many of the related robot appliances are being used extensively also. Here represents the technology that proposed the working of robot for Floor cleaning. This floor cleaner robot can work in any of two modes i. e. "Automatic and Manual". All hardware and software operations are controlled by AT89S52 microcontroller. This robot can perform sweeping and mopping task. RF modules have been used for wireless communication between remote (manual mode) and robot and having range 50m. This robot is incorporated with IR sensor for obstacle detection and automatic water sprayer pump. Four motors are used, two for cleaning, one for water pump and one for wheels. Dual relay circuit used to drive the motors one for water pump and another for cleaner. In previous work, there was no automatic water sprayer used and works only in automatic mode. In the automatic mode robot control all the operations itself and change the lane in case of hurdle detection and moves back. In the manual mode, the keypad is used to perform the expected task and to operate robot. In manual mode, RF module has been used to transmit and receive the information between remote and robot and display the information related to the hurdle detection on LCD. The whole circuitry is connected with 12V battery.
