How Does a Robot Vacuum Cleaner Work?


Vacuum cleaner robots are one of the most popular gadgets around right now. They're affordable, convenient, and, most of all - they do the hard work for you.

Traditional vacuum cleaners use the brush or suction to remove dirt from carpets and floors. They rely on a constant source of electricity to function, which means they need to be plugged in or turned on during use if they are not battery-powered. They are also enormous and hard to store. In general, they are manual devices that require a person to push or carry them around to clean the floor.

A vacuum cleaner robot is a type of automatic vacuum cleaner that uses sensors, motors, and algorithms to navigate around space and clean the floor. Some robot vacuums are designed to be hands-free and can be set to clean a specific space at a specific time or on a regular schedule. Robotic vacuum cleaners are increasingly becoming a favorite household gadget due to their efficiency at cleaning compared to traditional vacuum cleaners.

DEEBOT Vacuum and Mop in One

The vacuum cleaner robot with mopping function is an outstanding innovation in the robot vacuum industry. It can be challenging to get all the way under tables and around obstacles when using a manual mop. Robot mops do not have this issue. They are also coded to get as close to the floorboards as possible in order to avoid missing corners.


Our DEEBOT vacuum and mop in one is equipped with an advanced OZMO feature, enabling simultaneous sweep, vacuum and mop. Let’s take DEEBOT X1 OMNI as an example.



It is equipped with dual side brushes, a floating main brush, 5000Pa suction power, and the OZMO Turbo 2.0 rotating mopping system. DEEBOT X1 OMNI features combined sweep, suction, and strong mop for a deep and efficiently clean, guaranteeing no persistent stains remain.


Here we have listed several other cutting-edge technologies and features of our DEEBOT X1 vacuum cleaner robot.

Features of the DEEBOT Vacuum and Mop in One cleaner

1. Object recognition

Advanced AIVI 3D obstacle avoidance technology can avoid tight spaces and obstacles that often are scattered on the floor.

2. All-in-One OMNI Station

Our OMNI station was designed to completely liberate your hands. It makes automatic water replenishment a reality by replenishing the internal mopping tank with fresh water. It also has an auto-empty function and automatically clears the dustbin after vacuuming.

Benefits of Using a Vacuum Cleaner Robot with Mopping Function

1. Convenience


A robot vacuum cleaner with a mopping function can both vacuum and mop the floor  automatically, without requiring you to operate the device manually. It delivers a real hands-free experience. You only need to set a cleaning schedule and let the robot do the work for you.

2. Intelligent navigation

DEEBOT takes advantage of aerospace-level technology to explore every corner of your space. It generates a map of your floor plan, down to every piece of your furniture. Then it’s ready to start its work. Differing from robots with gyroscope mapping, DEEBOT doesn’t clean in pinball style. Instead, DEEBOT plans an ideal and effective path that minimizes the possibility of missing or repeating spots. This then assists in making it easy to clean those hard-to-reach places in the room.

3. User-friendly

Our ECOVACS DEEBOT vacuum cleaner robots are designed to be user-friendly and easy to operate. They have a simple, intuitive interface that allows you to control the device using buttons or a remote control with the app.


Moreover, our DEEBOT comes with detailed instructions and user manuals that explain how to use the device and troubleshoot any problems. We also have customer support services that can assist you with any questions or issues you may have.

How to Set Up and Use a Robot Vacuum Cleaner

1. Charge the vacuum cleaner robot 

The first step is to charge the robot vacuum cleaner. You need to full charge your robot vacuum cleaner if it is the first time for use.

2. Download the app

The next step is to download the ECOVACS app on your smartphone and follow the instructions to connect it to your robot vacuum cleaner. It provides a detailed guide that you have no need to worry you will fail it.

3. Connecting DEEBOT to WiFi & auto-update setup

You will first need to connect the robot vacuum cleaner to a WiFi network. This is important as this will allow it to communicate with the app on your smartphone and enable it to update its firmware.

4. Map your house

You will need to let your DEEBOT scan and map the house. This allows it to know where objects are and where they can go. It would help if you remembered not to pick it up when it is mapping to avoid losing its mapping information.

5. Setting up the Cleaning Schedule

You can now select a cleaning schedule. It is possible to choose one time or several times per week. The scheduling of your robot vacuum cleaner is essential, so it is best to follow your needs and set it up according to them.

How to Choose the Right Vacuum Cleaner Robot for Your Needs

There are several things to consider before purchasing a vacuum cleaner robot. Below are a few things you need to know about.

1. Budget

It is essential to consider how much you are willing to spend on your vacuum cleaner robot. Costs depend on the features, quality, and different smart levels of robots.

2. Purpose of purchasing the robot

If you only need to clean the floor, the DEEBOT series is what you should explore. However, if you need a helper to clean the window, you should learn more about the WINBOT line. Besides, do you need the robot cleaner to mop for you? You should figure out the purpose.

3. Size of room/Floor plan

Depending on how big your house is and how often you clean it, it is vital to define the operation time you need for the robot so you can use it to its full potential.

4. Noise level

The noise levels of robotic vacuum cleaners differ. If you want to keep your robot working in silence, you should take the noise level into consideration.
