The Dirt Detecting Robotic Vacuum.
This is the Roomba that detects heavily soiled areas and allots more time to cleaning these sections. Integrated optical sensors detect areas of high dirt concentration and acoustic sensors determine when the vacuum is working harder to remove detritus, signaling to the Roomba to concentrate on these areas. Made by iRobot, developers of tactical reconnaissance robots for the U.S. military, Roomba analyzes the dimensions of a room, determines the optimal cleaning path, and navigates autonomously to clean a floor in a thorough, back-and-forth pattern.
Roomba uses sensors to identify and circumvent furniture and stairs and it differentiates between soft barriers like bed skirts and hard surfaces like walls, allowing it to clean under beds and along walls. The cleaning head automatically adjusts to accommodate carpets or hard floors and dual HEPA filters capture dirt particles as fine as 0.3 microns.
It can be scheduled to automatically clean up to seven times per week or prompted to spot clean with the touch of a button. Roomba automatically returns to its charging base when its battery runs low and the two included Virtual Wall lighthouses project infrared beams that confine the vacuum to one room and direct it to another room when it is finished cleaning.
Includes an additional filter, remote control, and three additional cleaning brushes.
