1. An autonomous floor-cleaning robot, comprising:

  • a housing infrastructure including a chassis;

    a power subsystem for providing the energy to power said autonomous floor-cleaning robot;

    a motive subsystem operative to propel said autonomous floor-cleaning robot for cleaning operations;

    a control module operative to control the said autonomous floor-cleaning robot to effect said cleaning operations; and

    a self-adjusting cleaning head subsystem including a deck mounted in pivotal combination with said chassis, a brush assembly mounted in combination with said deck and powered by said motive subsystem to sweep up particulates during cleaning operations, a deck adjusting subassembly mounted in combination with said motive subsystem for said brush assembly, said deck, and said chassis that is automatically operative in response to a change in torque in said brush assembly to pivot said deck with respect to said chassis, and means coupled to said brush assembly for collecting particulates swept up by said brush assembly.
