Robot vacuum cleaners first appeared in 1996. It was made by Electrolux, Swedish household and professional appliance manufacturer. It was named “Trilobite”. Due to its quality of being unusual, it appeared on BBC’s science TV program, Tomorrow’s world.
Evolution of robot vacuum cleaners:
The first robot vacuum cleaner was a genius invention; however it faced problems in colliding with objects and also left tiny unclean areas. As a result, the Swedish household company terminated its production.
In 2001, a company from Britain made its first variant of robot vacuum cleaner but it was too costly and failed to enter into mass production. Later, an American company with its advanced technology launched a robot vacuum cleaner.
What they can do?
Robot vacuum cleaners are innovative and serve to various purposes. It reduces human intervention to a great extent and saves you a lot of time. Below are some of the features of robot vacuum cleaners.
The foremost feature that one would look in a robot vacuum cleaner is its ability to clean using vacuum technology. Vacuum cleaner uses an electric motor that spins a fan, sucking in air and any small particles caught up in it and gather it in its dust tank.
Some advanced models can also mop/wet clean, autonomously vacuuming and wet-mopping a floor in one pass (sweep and mop combo).
A robot vacuum cleaner can tackle multi-surfaces and comes with a variety of different cleaning modes giving you options of sweeping, vacuuming and mopping damp or wet floors.
A robot vacuum cleaner with multi functions is an added advantage.Few models like Cecotec can sweep any surface perform 3 levels of wet cleaning (scrub and mop), clean carpets perfectly and has special attachments for pet hair along with basic mopping and sweeping.
Some models allow control of the unit using an app over a WiFi connection, from your smart phone or connected home automation device, e.g. Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant.
Many robot vacuum cleaners come with anti-drop and anti-bump IR sensors. If the robot vacuum bumps into something (like a wall or a chair leg), the impact triggers the sensor.
Besides this, anti-fall sensors measure the distance between robot base and the floor which helps in identifying a sudden raise or drop of the floor. It will help the robot vacuum cleaner to prevent falling off the stairs.
The latest technology has helped many models come with in-built camera and laser technology which enables the robot to save map of the room for future cleaning programs.
The unit can use gyro, camera, radar or laser guided systems to create a floor plan, which can be permanently stored for more efficiency, and updated with information on areas which have been (or have not been) cleaned.
Robot vacuum cleaner which takes less time to recharge is more preferred by the users. You do not really like to wait for long for your robot vacuum cleaner to come out of its charging dock and perform its task.
