How Does A Robot Vacuum With Camera Work?
Did you know robot vacuums only started using cameras in 2015? Prior to that, they used low-cost infrared and collision detection sensors to detect obstacles, dumbly moving around a room at random. It was only in the last decade that smart vacuums started using cameras to capture photocells so they could identify specific objects and map their environment. Now, robotic vacuums with built-in cameras are on the rise. Let’s talk about what a camera does in your robot housekeeper and how camer

New robot vacuum models are being released with more high-tech obstacle avoidance. These smart devices are capable of not just objec
Why Robot Vacuums With Lidar Mapping Revolutionize Home Cleaning?
When you go shopping these days, it’s hard not to notice the trend of smart home appliances, and one of the most popular smart gadgets is undoubtedly the robotic vacuum cleaner. Since its first launch two decades ago, the demand has been growing rapidly as many people value its convenience and efficiency in cleaning floors. To make robotic vacuums smart, an important component is the navigation system, which helps the device to avoid obstacles and plan the best cleaning route. One tec
Can A Robot Vacuum Avoid And Clean Up Dog Poop?
Let’s imagine a scenario. You’ve got your spick and span smart vacuum, perfect for handling your daily debris. You tell it to run a cleaning cycle, until it runs into a pile-up — and not the highway kind.

In this guide, we’ll go over exa
