What sometimes happens while the robot is moving around, is that it notices you or your pet and records your position as an object on the internal map.
This can occur if you or your pet stand and watch the robot.
Then, when the robot reaches this position while cleaning, it searches for the object with its sensors and spins around a few times until it has marked the area as free again on the map.
The robot then continues cleaning as normal.
