  • Publication number: 20200142412
    Abstract: An autonomous moving apparatus includes a moving unit that moves the autonomous moving apparatus, a detector that detects distances from surrounding objects and shapes of the surrounding objects, and a controller that controls the moving unit. When a route of the autonomous moving apparatus is adjusted to a route of a follow target under control of the moving unit, the controller controls the moving unit so that the autonomous moving apparatus continues to move without changing the route of the autonomous moving apparatus if the follow target has changed the route but an obstacle having a possibility of causing a movement abnormality when the autonomous moving apparatus moves over the obstacle is present between the route of the follow target and the route of the autonomous moving apparatus.
