An automated vacuum cleaner.
I used to own a Roomba Discovery iRobot model 4310. It would automatically dock to recharge. It was life-changing, but my battery died and I didn't other to replace it since I couldn't properly use it at my new place.

Roomba is circling or spinning in place ∞
Circling Behavior 2: Roomba backs up briefly and spins in circles until the battery runs out.
How To Fix: Roomba's bumper sensor is likely obstructed or dirty; hold the Roomba in the air by the handle and slap the bumper briskly several times to dislodge any debris in the bumper sensor.
Roomba keeps backing up ∞
If your iRobot Roomba backs up erratically as it cleans, it's likely that the Cliff Sensors are dirty. To inspect and clean the Cliff Sensors, first Power Off Roomba, and empty the dirt bin to prevent spilling. Place the robot upside down on a flat surface. Locate the four Cliff Sensors under the front bumper, and inspect them for dirt or debris. Clean the sensors with a lint-free cloth or compressed air.
Roomba isn't finding its way back to the Home Base ∞
When Roomba determines that it is time to dock, it continues cleaning normally until it happens to cross the infrared beams emitted by the Home Base. So, if Roomba leaves the room where the Home Base is located to clean in another area, it might have some difficulty finding its way back to the Home Base on its own. If this should occur, you can use the remote control to drive the Roomba back to the room where the Home Base is located. You can also lift Roomba and place it within range of the Home Base, then press Power and Clean to restart the robot. If you often use Roomba to clean multiple rooms, you might consider purchasing an additional Home Base to place in another room and maximize the robot's chances of finding a place to dock.
Power problems ∞
When Clean button is selected, Dirt Dog beeps, then powers off ∞
The next time this happens, note whether the Clean Button indicator blinks red when it is selected. If so, this simply means Dirt Dog's battery needs to be recharged.
If the Clean Button indicator light does not illuminate and Dirt Dog shuts off every time Clean Mode is selected, Dirt Dog may have a malfunctioning wheel drop sensor. If this seems to be the case, contact iRobot Customer Support.
after a long charge, remove and replace it and it goes back into another long charge ∞
Dead battery? I'm asking for help..
