birth of a legend

1990

1990 saw the birth of the iRobot company from scratch. The Massachusetts Institute of Technology was chosen as the sacred territory for the creation of a union between robotics Colin Angle, Helen Greiner and Professor Dr. Brooks.

The initial thought of making human life easier brought 20 years later the fruits in the form of a capital of 307 000 000 USD the company has presently at its disposal. The key to the success of iRobot was an uncompromising quality. iRobot is currently employing over 400 professionals in robotics, software and information technology.

"adversaries" adversaries – without sense

Random prestige brands distributed locally look rather comical in direct comparison with the iRobot Roomba. Purely Asian products are only a caricature of iRobot Roomba. They are mostly distributed without adequate service facilities, poor to modest capabilities and very pale future. You will know the difference between the iRobot Roomba and something that looks like a robotic vacuum cleaner at first glance.

Roomba – Window to the Future

IRobot Roomba how it works ...

What is behind the success? IRobot Roomba robotic vacuum cleaner features a unique orientation system iAdapt, which adapts itself to the environment regardless of the base. And it crosses over each square centimetre during one shift 4 times on average. All steps of iRobot Roomba are evaluated by high-performance ARM processor, which also places the Apple iPhone into its model. iRobot Roomba obtains the input data from 38 active sensors, with dropping or slowing down check included.

iAdapt 38 sensors ARM

Robotic vacuum cleaner Roomba uses sensitive cleaning technology iAdapt ™, an advanced system of software and sensors. Thanks to the iAdapt technology, the robotic vacuum cleaner can actively

monitor Roomba cleaned environment 67times per second, and react with more than 40 different movements to clean the room thoroughly.


ADAPT

28 min.

cleaning completed Cleans each place 4 times 98% surface coverage cleans along walls c le cleans difficult-to-reach places llonger on cleaning time

It goes over every place four times and thus maximises its effectiveness and ensures perfect cleaning. Thanks to its touch system, it fears no dark corners, and it even cleans difficult-to-reach places. The advanced orientation system adapts to every type of space. It doesn’t miss out any corners, and it cleans along the walls and in the corners of rooms.

iAdapt. Perfect cleaning. IRobot Roomba’s technical sophistication is also confirmed by the iAdapt system. Its essence consists of sensors communicating with programming equipment. It is monitoring the space cleaned 67times per second, to which IRobot Roomba responds by more than 40 moves. With absolute precision and grace. Proved by an average of 4x visits of one location during one cleaning cycle. In a nutshell, the iAdapt system represents a completely adaptable system equivalent to artificial intelligence.

The price for the endurance of robotic cleaners is the low suction power. And for this reason iRobot focuses on multiple cleaning.

iAdapt. 20 years experience. iAdapt system is mainly based on 20 years full of learning. A search of the best ways of monitoring, guidance and cleaning, leading to the inception of iAdapt – a system that is completely selfsufficient and able to operate reliably.

Systém iAdapt Fully adaptive behaviour that iRobot Roomba brings to a robotic vacuum cleaner brings unmatchable independence. Thanks to iAdapt it is able to adapt to the environment, surface and the level of untidiness. Based on the input data, it evaluates and applies the best moves, of which there are more than 40. The key characteristics of iRobot Roomba is its thoroughness. It simply does not finish cleaning until it runs over each place 4 times on average. The faultless iAdapt application is supported by the Cleaning Head Module, adapting to all surfaces. The tax paid for the endurance of robotic vacuum cleaners is a relatively small suction power. It is because of this that iRobot focuses on the average of 4 times per one place multiple cleaning effort, thus amply compensating for the low suction power. Although it takes longer to clean when compared to others, the quality of cleaning can be described as unparalleled. Given the self-sufficiency of the iAdapt and the choice of timing you need not worry at all about the cleaning time. While the iRobot will ensure that the home environment standard is maintained, you will be able to enjoy life. So there is the main reason for the acquisition of a robotic vacuum cleaner.


systematic cleaning

19 min.

cleaning completed

short cleaning time sho iitt vvisits is every place only once out difficult-to-reach places it leaves le it does not go along the walls or into corners it can leave out an entire segment of area

The plan used for systematic movement is not suitable for cramped spaces. The system often leaves out these difficult-to-reach places. Movement along a predetermined path makes it impossible to visit the same place more than once. This leads to a corresponding reduction in cleaning quality. Systematic movement consists only of making one type of movement, which often leaves an entire area uncleaned.

Systematic cleaning The year is 1999, and iRobot is finally abandoning the idea of systematic cleaning; in spite of it and eleven years later the market is offering robotic vacuum cleaners equipped with a systematic cleaning , i.e. a system that copies the shape of the room. The problem is obvious. Such a robotic vacuum cleaner is more of an automaton than anything else. The fact that the manufacturers are calling this feature revolutionary is rather amusing. A robotic vacuum cleaner equipped with a systematic monitoring is unable to escape from an unpredictable situation, as it is unable to adapt; it simply stops cleaning. In addition to the selected method of cleaning, which is not the most ideal, the inability to perform well is also due to lack of enough number of

We can describe such a robotic vacuum cleaner as an automaton more than anything else.

learned moves. The low suction power and also the fact that each place is suctioned only once do not create too much confidence, as evidenced by our laboratory tests, on which results we base our further development. Such a result cannot be considered as a 100% performed work, but only a quick crossing of the base. iRobot Roomba targets successfully for quality work. You simply set the iRobot and let it do the work, while you doing what you enjoy. Time is of no essence in such case.

The result is not 100% cleaning but merely giving a surface a quick going over.


Random cleaning system

46 min.

cleaning completed it can visit certain places several times lo longer cleaning time it leaves entire surfaces uncleaned frequent cycling in one place ineffective cleaning

Random movement is not controlled by any form of artificial intelligence. Whether or not it cleans more difficult-to reach places is a question of chance, which is often not favourable. This form of movement frequently results in cycling, where the system cannot rationally direct the robot out from the corner of a room, from under a table etc. Without the requisite movement logic, the system can direct the robot into cramped spaces at random, where it cycles until the battery is completely flat. Random movement has no form of strategy for getting out of such a situation.

Random cleaning A very curious way of cleaning is offered by a random cleaning. The angle of rebound from the obstacle determines the direction of travel. You only have to set the time, and the robot will start wandering through the room for the preset time. However, it is highly unlikely that it will achieve any interesting results. Then it isn’t really a robotic vacuum cleaner, which evaluates each square millimetre in the pursuit of only one goal. Clean surface. These vacuum cleaners are very specific. Usually one model is marked with different labels. To identify it from the robotic vacuum cleaner is a question of a moment. It gives itself away by lower price, and rather flimsy construction. Such devices will never be able to compete with the company iRobot due to the fact that not enough attention is given to the quality, a satisfied customer and the efficiency of the product. Getting out of you as much money as possible is the sole purpose of such exercise.

This is not a robotic vacuum cleaner which thinks about how to clean well.
