The Advanced Robot Vacuum Cleaners

Jan 29, 2015

  As we all know, nowadays, intelligent matters are sweeping all over the modern world with the developing of technology. So that the intelligent objects or articles are enjoying the large popularity with the public masses. While the intelligent vacuum cleaners – robotic vacuum cleaner is one embodiment as the current affairs hotspot.

  The world's first robotic vacuum cleaner uses a laser-based range-finder to scan and map its surrounding. It uses this map to clean the floor methodically, even if it requires the robot to return to its base multiple times to recharge itself. In many cases it will notice when an area of the floor that was previously inaccessible becomes reachable, such as when a dog wakes up from a nap, and return to vacuum that area. It also has the strongest impeller among robotic vacuum cleaners, pulling in 35CFM of air. Some robotic vacuum cleaner (DC06) was too expensive for home use, due to its high technical specifications. Thus, it was never released, although it is claimed (by whom?) that it would have been the first robotic vacuum cleaner sold.

A wide variety of technologies, designs, and configurations are available for both domestic and commercial cleaning jobs. Then the invention and researching & developing of various vacuum cleaners have been coming into focus by both buyers and sellers. The most common robotic vacuum cleaners use a drive-belt powered by the suction motor to rotate the brush-roll. However, a more common design of dual motor upright is available. In these cleaners, the suction is provided via a large motor, while the brush roll is powered by a separate, smaller motor, which does not create any suction. The brush-roll motor can sometimes be switched off, so hard floors can be cleaned without the brush-roll scattering the dirt. It may also have an automatic cut-off feature which shuts the motor off if the brush-roll becomes jammed, protecting it from damage.

Robotic vacuum cleaners are popular in the United States, Britain and numerous Commonwealth countries, but very unusual in Continental Europe (citation needed). They take the form of a cleaning head, onto which a handle and bag are attached. Upright designs generally employ a rotating brush roll or beater bar, which removes dirt through a combination of sweeping and vibration. There are two types of upright vacuums; dirty-air, direct fan (found mostly on commercial vacuums), or clean-air/fan-bypass (found on most of today's domestic vacuums). Several companies developed robotic vacuum cleaners, a form of carpet sweeper usually equipped with limited suction power. Some prominent makers are Roomba,Neato, bObsweep among others. These machines move autonomously while collecting surface dust and debris into a dustbin. They can usually navigate around furniture and come back to a docking station to charge their batteries, and a few are able to empty their dust containers into the dock as well. Most models are equipped with motorized brushes and a vacuum motor to collect dust and debris. While most robotic vacuum cleaners are designed for home use, some models are appropriate for operation in offices, hotels, hospitals, etc.
