iRobot introduces a new combo model for domestic cleaning

iRobot today presented Combo j7+, robot vacuum cleaner and mop, along with the iRobot OS 5.0 update, the operating system that provides intelligence to the entire range. It stands out from other 2-in-1 robots because it vacuums and mops in one cleaning job. This functionality is made possible by the cloth that rises over the top of the robot when it encounters rugs and rugs, preventing the rugs from getting wet. iRobot OS 5.0, meanwhile, introduces digital features and experiences that enhance intelligence and personalization across the company's entire range of connected robots.

iRobot OS provides the intelligence that drives our robots. It brings to life home products that act and think for themselves and that respect, connect and understand the user's home and lifestyle. winged during the presentation Colin Angle, president and CEO of iRobot. “Roomba Combo j7+ seamlessly combines the intelligence of iRobot’s operating system with hardware designed to offer customers a vacuuming and cleaning solution capable of keeping carpets and hard floors clean.

“Until now, most 2-in-1 robot vacuums and mops provided a limited experience because they required their functions to be performed separately, involved more work time when performing different cleaning cycles, and could cause a disaster by not raising the scouring pad high enough to avoid rugs and rugs. The Roomba Combo j7+ uniquely solves both of these challenges,” said Keith Hartsfield, Product Manager at iRobot. get smarter over time because it will go automatically downloading new features as we update them.”

Unlike other 2-in-1s, it vacuums rugs and rugs first, then vacuums and scrubs hard floors in one pass, cleaning the area in one work cycle. It has sensors that detect various types of soil. When Roomba Combo j7+ gets close to carpets and rugs, the hinged visor rises and the mopping cloth rises to the top of the robot – similar to how a convertible raises its roof. , thus avoiding to get the carpet wet.

Updates

Using the iRobot operating system and the PrecisionVision Navigationof the robot, there is no need to worry about tidying up before cleaning begins.

It also allows you to detect and avoid obstacles on the floor, such as cables, clothes, shoes, socks, backpacks, pet bowls and toys, and even unexpected solids from pets. To make cleaning easy, you can connect the robot with the voice assistant and tell it to clean specific rooms or around and under specific objects in the house.

Two metal arms hold the robotic visor and raise the mopping cloth when the robot detects carpets, preventing them from getting wet.

It is full and, at that moment, it switches to scrubbing mode automatically, this is an important difference compared to other 2-in-1s that have a cloth that has to be placed manually after vacuuming. In the new model the mop to scrub is connected and ready to work from the start. For the vacuum function, it includes the Clean Base self-emptying station, which allows you to empty the dirt and debris it collects into a closed bag that does not need to be replaced for 60 days.
