Life is getting busier while human labour is getting costlier day by day. While vacuum cleaners have made house cleaning easy for us, there’s an advanced version that’ll help you save more time. Yes, we’re talking about a robotic vacuum cleaner – an automated version that you can operate remotely using your smartphone or smart speaker.
What is a Robotic Vacuum Cleaner?
One of the major differences between a traditional and a robotic vacuum cleaner is that the latter works with remote control. It has a lot of sensors that helps it understand the surrounding environment to move around and clean accordingly.
So, we can define a robotic vacuum cleaner as an automated and programmed machine designed for cleaning floor surfaces.
How are These Vacuum Cleaners Programmed and What Can They Do?
Imagine if a robotic vacuum cleaner falls from the stairs or bumps into your glass table. These cleaners are multi-functional – providing vacuum cleaning, sweeping and mopping services. Both dry and wet cleaning is possible. However, what if it tries to vacuum clean a floor where you dropped water or sprays water on the carpet?
This is exactly what sensors and programming do. The sensors help the vacuum cleaner understand the surface, the barriers, and the kind of dirt it has to clean. The programming helps it decide which direction to move to, which cleaning mode to use and what to clean first.
Usually, it cleans the larger debris first and puts them in its bin first. Next, it goes for the smaller waste particles like hair, food, pet hair or dust. It’ll store these wastes in another compartment. Once your house is clean, you’ll have to open it, take out the collected trash and throw it in your actual dustbin. That’s the only thing you need to do manually – the rest is taken care of by your robot vacuum cleaner.
Wouldn’t you love to have something like this to clean your house while you’re sitting and watching TV may be?
