Pancake Box (Optimization of automatic sweeper)

Do you also think that the common sweeper is difficult to clean the corners and its appearance is very common? Now we have improved these defects on the basis of ordinary automatic sweeping machines. Our design was inspired by a lovely undersea creature named flapjack octopus.
The machine supports APP remote intelligent control, as well as multi-functional intelligent systems such as voice control, sweeping and mopping simultaneously, automatic charging, intelligent positioning and cleaning planning, which make it more convenient for users to clean their houses.
