  • Patent number: 10466711
    Abstract: Disclosed are a moving robot and a controlling method thereof. The moving robot which selectively moves an area based on a stored map to search a charging station within a short time when there is a need for charging due to consumption of a battery. Although a position of the moving robot is optionally changed, the moving robot recognizes a position thereof so that it is easy to move between areas and an influence according to complexity of an obstacle is reduced. Since the charging station in an area may be searched through small moving by setting a specific point in the area as a search position to search the charging station, stop of an operation during searching the charging station may be solved and the charging station may be exactly searched within a short time.
