The patent filed by Ecovacs Robotics Co Ltd describes a robot control method that involves determining the robot's position when it is hijacked and when it is released from being hijacked through a relocalization operation. If the positions belong to the same environmental area and the hijacked position is in a difficult area, the robot executes tasks at the released position. If the positions are in the same area but not in a difficult area, the robot returns to the hijacked position to complete the task. The method allows for flexible task execution based on the environment, meeting user requirements effectively.

Furthermore, the method includes specific steps such as adopting a sweeping mode for task execution, continuing incomplete tasks from before the hijacking, and utilizing a relocalization operation during movement to determine the released position accurately. The robot can also respond to user instructions for determining the released position. Overall, the patent focuses on enhancing the robot's ability to adapt to different environmental areas when hijacked, ensuring efficient task execution and user satisfaction.
