I'm actually working on an instructable for that!

It uses a series of switches to get out of corners, and it hasn't gotten stuck yet. When will you need it done by?

To really do this effectively is a considerable engineering task. Robotic hoovering is about as far as it gets.

Of course most of us already have several robots that clean for us - The washing machine, the dish washer. - The automatic car wash.

Not every robot has arms and legs!

Find a small child, they're commonly found near playgrounds. Duct tape a broom to one arm and a mop to the other. When it seems like the batteries are running low, pour in a couple Pixy Stix and it should speed back up to normal.
