Rarely, Ohmni is designed to always stay upright by packing most of the weight in the base, easily rolling when bumped. Due to these three points of contact Ohmni rarely falls or tips, but there are a few circumstances when you should use caution while operating Ohmni.
- Ohmni will recognize if a wheel is not able to move and will stop moving to prevent a tip or fall. Backing up or running into the edge of a table is harder for Ohmni to detect. Be cautious when driving around obstacles that can bump or push Ohmni’s middle section.
- There are certain shaggy surfaces, like a shag rug or carpet, that can make traction on the wheels difficult for Ohmni. This can lead to Ohmni becoming wobbly and unstable. When on these surfaces please reduce your speed and drive with caution.
- When confronted with small obstacles like power cords, floor transitions, and bumps Ohmni is designed to roll over them with ease. Though with all obstacles, especially larger bumps, there are risks of tipping and we recommend going over bumps straight on rather than at an angle.
