Similar to its competitors, the powerbot have a virtual mapping system, which Samsung calls as Visionary mapping system. The system comprises of a digital camera coupled with nine individual sensors. The camera on the top enables the bot to scan the ceiling and create a virtual map of the room.

Ever wonder why the camera is placed on top? The answer is simple. We move our furniture around all the time confusing the bot about the boundary and its territory. Whereas the ceiling remains unchanged. Making it perfect point of reference for virtual mapping.
