How does Keecker navigate around the house?

Keecker is equipped with a wide range of sensors : infrared, depth camera, gyroscopes, 360 camera, magnetometer and more. To navigate, Keecker merges all this data together to map the room, move around while avoiding obstacle and localise himself within your home.

He will be able to avoid or stop automatically at best in the face of moving obstacles (human, animals) but if they move too fast or run into him, he won't avoid the collision.

Keecker is also designed to avoid holes and not fall over. He can not prevent falling if pushed or placed on a surface with less than 1m2 around him.

Keecker will not go down the stairs and stops in front of holes. To lower him or climb a staircase, just carry Keecker and climb him up or down manually.

Keecker has been designed to pass as many common obstacles in a home as possible such as door steps, wires, and all types of floors (carpet, tiles, parquet, concrete etc., with the exception of transparent glass floors).
Keecker can pass obstacles up to about 2 centimeters high.

You can control Keecker with the joystick in the app or order Keecker to go wherever you want (by voice or with the feature "move to" in the application).

To use the voice command, Keecker must have mapped your house before.

Before each trip, make sure that:

  • the floor is clear (no cables, clothes, papers ...) and the doors open
  • the light is sufficient but not dazzling for Keecker sensors
  • avoid people moving around or in front of Keecker. This can disrupt his movement.
  • his location on the map is correct.
