Pathfinder / household appliances


Household appliances are becoming more automated, but most of them are unable to cooperate, and people still need to spend time completing the intermediate process. One reason is that their position with each other is uncertain. Pathfinder can provide them the information about environment, so make different household appliances cooperate with each other become possible, and humans only need to enjoy the results.
