Q. What types of obstacles can Misty drive over?

We designed the Misty II to negotiate common transitions in floor heights (excluding stairs), so we specified a 20mm threshold of climbing. For example, a typical door threshold or carpet-hardwood transition is about 19 mm in height. Extension cables, power cables, standing mats, floor/bath/welcome mats, socks, and small toys are all obstacles we had in mind while setting this spec and testing. Head positioning, speed, and direction can all make the difference in getting up or tipping over.
