You don't need to clean your homes now, Xiaomi's new Mi Robot Vacuum would do it for you automatically
Xiaomi has announced the launch of a new Mi Ecosystem product, Mi Robot Vacuum which would be available in China commencing Setptember 6th, 2016. The device would sell on Xiaomi's online store Mi.com and Mi Home Stores in China for a price of RMB 1699 (approximately Rs. 17000). Mi Robot Vacuum has been engineered by Mi Ecosystem company Rockrobo. The robot cleans homes in a smart, effective and reliable way.
Mi Robot Vacuum is an extremely intuitive way of cleaning your surroundings. The product has 12 sensors which includes Laser Distance Sensor (LDS), ultrasonic radar sensor, cliff sensor, gyroscope and accelerometer. The number of sensors present on the device makes us feel the vacuum cleaner is a computer in itself. The Laser Distance Sensor has been developed by Xiaomi in-house and it is synonymous with the laser guiding systems present in self-driving cars. The robot has been embedded with three dedicated processors for real time position monitoring and data tracking.
Other features of this state-of-the-art robot vacuum include a powerful Nidec brushless DC motor which provides power with a super quiet airflow. The height of the primary brush is adjustable and the technology allows for near perfect cleaning close to walls as well. The robot utilises Simultaneous Localisation and Mapping, in short SLAM algorithm to determine the best paths for cleaning.
Mi Robot Vacuum is backed up by a 5200 mAh battery which can deliver 2.5 hours of continuous run time. The robot competently connects to the Mi Home app on a Xiaomi smartphone. This allows for controlling the robot remotely as well as define cleaning schedules when the robot can be switched on or off.
We are really impressed with the work that Xiaomi is doing in the field of electronics. They started as a smartphone company but have now ventured into and diversified their portfolio to suit the needs of as many consumers they come in touch with. Moreover, the brand is known to price their products extremely affordably which makes them a go-to company for all things related to technology. The mass popularity of Xiaomi products is an effect of their democratising technology by providing superior specifications and features at low costs. The momentum that Xiaomi has gained over the last few years is massive and if they continue to march forward at the same rate, they do have a chance to become market leaders in various sub-categories that they choose to manufacture their products under.
