1. A robot to operate autonomously, comprising:

  • a driving subsystem to autonomously move the robot;

    an emitter/detector subsystem to detect an object in close proximity to the robot based on a signal reflection;

    a temperature sensitive subsystem to detect an object in close proximity to the robot based on a change in temperature; and

    an edge detection subsystem to detect an edge in close proximity to the robot;

    wherein the driving subsystem will change a direction of the robot, in response to an object or an edge in close proximity to the robot being detected, to thereby prevent the robot from colliding with an object or falling off an edge.
