1. A method for automatically orienting and controlling a robot system in a space for performing work on a defined surface in said space as a result of said orientation, said robot system travelling on said surface, comprising measuring scalar values on all sides of the system representing said surface or space, supplying said scalar values to data processing means including mathematical models and performing mathematical transformations to produce characteristic data for said surface or space which characteristic data geometrically define said surface or space, to provide a basis for said orienting, processing said characteristic data with the aid of a mathematical optimization model to form operation instructions for said robot system, said operation instructions comprising a sequence of steps for moving and working, and supplying said operation instructions to said robot system, said scalar values being ascertained predominantly during the orientation and/or working.
