Neato Robotics releases new vacuum cleaner design
on Monday,June 28,2010 22:06
Representatives from California-based company Neato Robotics have announced the launch of a new home vacuum cleaner that is designed to clean consumers' homes when they are out of the house.
The Neato XV-11 uses a Room Positioning System technology to create a 360-degree map of a room. This plan leads the machine to clean the perimeter of a room first and strategically cover the interior using a back-and-forth motion.
Using lasers, the robotic vacuum creates the most efficient path for cleaning by taking walls, furniture, doorways and other obstacles into account. This technology allows the vacuum to trace and avoid items that are up to four meters away, while most similar models can only detect obstacles through impact.
The device also features a centrifugal compression impeller, which uses jet engine airflow technology to create suction while conserving energy. Additional features include low-profile access, scuff-free navigation, self-docking capabilities and a cleaning scheduler.
Max Safai, the company's CEO, said that the XV-11 is "designed to provide complete floor coverage so your high standards are not compromised" and may be "even more thorough than humans."
