Roomba Robot Vacuums And Mops: They Were The First And They're Still The Best...

Colin Angle, Chairman, CEO and Founder of iRobot. The company is building an ecosystem of robots and technologies to enable the smart home.
With so many people having very busy lifestyles, there is a definite need for downtime. The last thing we want to do when we come home is vacuum. Especially if you have pets and need to vacuum daily. With iRobot's line of products, you can sit back and relax while this adorable robot does all of the work. iRobot is the leading global consumer robot company. They design and build robots that empower people to do more both inside and outside of their homes.  Their products include the award-winning Roomba Vacuuming Robot and the Braava family of mopping robots.

iRobot Roomba s SeriesFounded in 1990 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology roboticists with the vision of making practical robots a reality, iRobot has sold more than 25 million robots worldwide. The company has developed some of the world's most important robots, and has a rich history steeped in innovation. Its robots have revealed mysteries of the Great Pyramid of Giza, found harmful subsea oil in the Gulf of Mexico, and saved thousands of lives in areas of conflict and crisis around the globe. iRobot inspired the first Micro Rovers used by NASA, changing space travel forever, deployed the first ground robots used by U.S. Forces in conflict, brought the first self-navigating FDA-approved remote presence robots to hospitals and introduced the first practical home robot with Roomba, forging a path for an entirely new category in home cleaning. With more than 25 years of leadership in the robot industry, iRobot remains committed to building robots that provide people with smarter ways to clean and accomplish more in their daily lives.

These two robots work together to provide the deepest clean possible in the home. Together, they can use Imprint Link Technology to talk to each other, automatically vacuuming and then mopping, without any effort from the user. It's crazy and true. "In 2018, iRobot brought robot memory and automatic bin emptying to the Roomba robot vacuum, ushering in a level of hands-free cleaning automation not previously realized in consumer robots," said Colin Angle, chairman and CEO of iRobot. "With the launch of the Roomba s9+ and Braava jet m6, iRobot has achieved another automation milestone for home robots. Not only can customers forget about vacuuming for weeks at a time, but their robot vacuum and mop can now work together – automatically vacuuming then mopping – without any effort from the user." Additionally, the i7+ is their best-selling robot vacuum with a few less features.

iRobot's roomba s9 with mobile phone
Roomba s9+ Robot Vacuum. With its Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal, this awesome vacuum sports a sleek Maximized-Edge design and is the most intelligent, powerful, and deepest cleaning Roomba robot to date. It offers customers the deepest clean yet with an advanced 3D sensor, a powerful new cleaning system and PerfectEdge Technology, which encompasses 30 percent wider Dual Rubber Brushes and a specially designed Corner Brush. Each Rubber Brush has rubber treads that stay in constant contact with different floor surfaces – from hard floors to carpets – adjusting and flexing as needed to get everything from small particles, like dust and dirt, to hair and large debris. A specially designed Corner Brush uses five angled arms to grab dirt and debris from deep in corners and along walls, directing it into the robot's path to be vacuumed up. The Roomba s9+ boasts a powerful new cleaning system with up to 40X the suction over previous generation Roomba vacuums. When the Roomba s9+ detects carpets or rugs, the robot employs its Power Boost technology to automatically increase suction to pull in dirt and debris from deep within carpet fibers. iRobot's patented iAdapt 3.0 Navigation with vSLAM technology helps the Roomba s9+ seamlessly and efficiently navigate the home by keeping track of where it's been and where it has yet to clean. A new advanced 3D sensor on the Roomba s9+ constantly scans what's immediately ahead of the robot at a rate of 25 times per second to help the s9+ get deep into corners and clean large areas efficiently. Using iRobot's Imprint Smart Mapping technology, the Roomba s9+ gets to know the home's floor plan, giving customers total control to choose which rooms are cleaned and when. The robot can be scheduled to clean via the iRobot HOME App or by pressing the CLEAN button. Users can also initiate a cleaning with voice control when the robot is paired with Alexa enabled devices or the Google Assistant. The Roomba s9+ robot features the first and only Anti-Allergen System for robots that traps and locks pollen and mold allergens, keeping them from escaping the robot or its Clean Base Charging Station and it includes a High-Efficiency Filter that captures 99 percent of mold, pollen, and dust mite allergens. Once the Roomba s9+ robot is finished cleaning, it returns to the Clean Base Charging Station to automatically empty its contents into a disposable bag, trapping dirt and dust. The Clean Base Charging Station holds 30 bins of debris, allowing customers to forget about vacuuming for weeks at a time.

iRobot's Braava m6
Braava jet m6 Robot Mop. This awesome mop tackles multiple rooms and large spaces with advanced navigation and mapping capabilities. The Braava jet m6 robot mop delivers fresh, clean floors throughout the entire home. Users simply attach their preferred cleaning pad – Wet Mopping or Dry Sweeping – and the robot takes it from there. Like the Roomba s9+ robot, the Braava jet m6 robot uses iAdapt 3.0 Navigation with vSLAM technology and Imprint Smart Mapping to get to know the home's floor plan, giving users total control to choose which rooms are cleaned and when. The robot can be scheduled to clean via the iRobot HOME App or by pressing the CLEAN button. Users can also initiate cleaning via voice control when the robot is paired with Alexa enabled devices or the Google Assistant. Ideal for hard floor surfaces, such as hardwood, tile, and stone, the Braava jet m6 robot features a Maximized-Edge design that helps the robot get into corners and along edges. Using advanced navigation, the robot cleans in an efficient pattern while navigating around furniture, rugs, and other obstacles. If the robot runs low on battery before its cleaning job is finished, it will automatically recharge and resume cleaning until the job is complete. In Wet Mopping mode, the Precision Jet Spray and Wet Mopping pad tackle sticky messes, grime, and kitchen grease. Users can add Braava jet Hard Floor Cleaning Solution for a long-lasting, fresh scent. In Dry Sweeping mode, the Dry Sweeping pad uses electrostatic force to capture dirt, dust and pet hair. When the Braava jet robot mop is finished cleaning, users don't have to worry about touching the dirty cleaning pads. Simply place the robot over a waste basket and hit the 'eject' button to drop the pad into the trash. Users can view Clean Map reports in the app to see where the Braava jet m6 cleaned and view other stats about the cleaning job. Reusable washable wet and dry cleaning pads are available for purchase separately.
