Roomba vs thick rug

I have hard wood floors and my roombas are amazing. If I add a large thick rug to my living room will they impress me? Thinking of something like this... ... =11x15+rug

We have a sheepskin rug and Roomba gets bogged down. Occasionally he'll make it across, but usually he slows to a stop and I get "Error, move Roomba to a different spot..."

I think you'll be okay on that rug you show - it will slow down a lot though.
