Robot fails to climb up slanted edge
I have a house with two floors and have been using the i9 to clean my lower floor for a year now, much to my delight. Now I decided to get one for the upper floor, too.
On that floor, I have one room that I'm using as a gym. Part of the floor is covered with thick rubber pads to protect the floor. These pads are slanted on their edge which, at least in theory, should make it easy for any robot cleaner to get up or down the pad.
Unfortunately, the i9 refuses to go up 9 times out of 10. Not only that, it seems deeply confused about these edges and spends much time around them unnecessarily.
A picture says more than a thousand words, I'll attach two.
The first one shows a general view of the floor. The second shows the mentioned edge from the side. As you can see, the pad is about 3cm high which by itself should already be possible for the i9 to handle but seeing as how the edge is slanted, it should make things easier for the robot. Instead, it seems to do the opposite.
I hope the firmware can be improved in such a way that the robot can handle these slanted edges better.
