How Does Eufy Know When to Stop Cleaning?

Eufy Robovacs apply different technologies to navigate around your home while cleaning. The technology and algorithm depend on your robot vacuum model.

Eufy Robovacs use the iPath, Dynamic, or Bounce navigational technology to move around and know when it’s done cleaning. Once the Robovac has covered the cleaning area, it returns to the charging base, indicating a successful cleaning task.

In this post, I’ll help you understand the different Eufy navigational technologies and the models that use the technology. We’ll also see some other factors that could come into play and cause your robot vacuum to stop cleaning.

How Does Eufy Know When to Stop Cleaning?

Eufy Robovacs apply navigational technologies and algorithms with the incorporated sensors to maneuver their way while cleaning. The algorithm guides the Robovac until all the area that needs to be cleaned is covered. Once the Roborock is done cleaning, it navigates its way to the charging dock and waits for the next task.

Every Eufy robot vacuum uses one of the three navigational technologies.

  1. Bounce navigation
  2. Dynamic navigation
  3. iPath navigation

As we shall see, Bounce and Dynamic navigation technologies don’t support floor mapping, unlike the iPath navigation technique.

Although Eufy Robovacs apply different techniques, they all get the job done, which is what matters. The design technology variations create different budget gaps from low, mid, to high-end devices depending on one’s needs.

Bounce Navigation

The Eufy bounce series robovac models apply this navigational technology and don’t create maps of the cleaning area. These robovacs appear to be cleaning in a randomized pattern.

They use infrared sensors as they clean in a back-and-forth straight-line pattern, the robovac changes direction when it encounters an obstacle.

Although the cleaning may look random, the robot vacuum algorithm guides the Robovac to cover all areas that need cleaning before it automatically docks.

The following Eufy models are designed with technology: 30 / 30C / 30C Max / 35C / R450 / R500 / R550C/ 10 / 11 / 11 Plus / 11C / 11C Pet Edition / 11S / 11S Plus / 11S Max / 12 / 15C / 15C Max / 15T / 20 / 25C / 25C Max.

Dynamic Navigation

Eufy robovacs models designed with this technology appear to move in a zigzag pattern as they go about their business, and they, too, cannot create maps.

The Robovacs use gyroscope and accelerometer sensors to determine the direction and distance it travels on the cleaning route. After covering the entire area, the robot vacuum finishes with the edges and corners by running on the wall edges before returning to its charging dock.

The following models apply this technology: G10 Hybrid / G20 / G20 Hybrid / G30 / G30 Hybrid / G30 Edge / G30 Verge/G35+/G40+/G40 Hybrid+.

iPath Navigation

Finally, Eufy introduced mapping technology with this technique. These Robovacs clean in a Z-shaped pattern and create and store a cleaning map.

Along with the other sensors, these models use the Lidar sensor to scan the surroundings and precisely create a map, navigate, and clean. Again, these Robovacs implement the Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm to generate the cleaning route intelligently.

Once all the areas needing cleaning are done, the machine returns to the dock station.

The iPath navigation design is available in these models: LR30 Hybrid series/L35 Hybrid series/LR20/ L70 Hybrid / X8 / X8 Hybrid.

When Does Eufy Robovac Stop Cleaning?

Apart from Eufy Robovac stopping after task completion, other scenarios could come into play and make your robot vacuum stop. This is aided by the multiple sensors fitted into the robot vacuum.

As we have already seen, Eufy Robovacs use their built-in navigational mechanisms to detect when the whole area to be cleaned is done. Then the robot vacuum begins its journey home to recharge and wait for the next task.

Again, the Eufy robot vacuums are fitted with a sensor mechanism that detects when the battery is running low (Usually below 20%). Once the brain center receives this message, “Hey, buddy, the battery is about to die,” the vacuum stops the session and returns to the charging base.

After it has sufficiently boosted the charge level, the robovac resumes the cleaning task to completion.

However, unlike other robot vacuums, Eufy models don’t have bin sensors telling the robot to stop when the bin is full. Therefore, create an appropriate emptying schedule for the self-empty Eufy models.

On the other hand, if you empty your Robovac manually, be sure to do so after a task or two.

Sometimes the Eufy vacuum stops simply because it’s stuck or couldn’t find the charging base. Luckily, the robovac communicates to you what the problem is with an indicator light and beeping.

Now you understand all the scenarios that could make your Eufy robovac stop and how it does it.

Frequently Asked Questions

How Long Does EUFY Clean For?

Primary, Eufy Robovacs have a 100 minutes runtime when fully charged and on standard suction mode. However, the cleaning time depends on the mode, floor type, and layout. The BoostIQ mode for cleaning thick carpets draws more power from the battery, and it’s bound to drain it faster than the standard operation mode.

While running your Robovac on BoostIQ mode, you should get a runtime of approximately 60 minutes.

The Max mode uses the highest suction power. Therefore, the Robovac runtime drops to approximately 50 minutes in this mode.

How Long Does EUFY Clean for On Auto?

While on Auto cleaning mode, Eufy Robovac runs for approximately 100 minutes. The BoostIQ and Max cleaning modes command a higher suction power, draining the battery faster.

Will EUFY Stop When Full?

No. Eufy Robovacs aren’t fitted with full-bin sensors. Thus, they can’t detect when the dust collector is full to stop. This calls for your attention to help keep the device running by either setting the auto-emptying feature on for the self-empty models or manually emptying the bin after a run or two.
