iRobot has announced the launch of two new highly evolved robot vacuum cleaners that can also work in combination to bring a superior clean to homes. Roomba s9 + with Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal (charging base with automatic robot emptying system) boasts an elegant Maximized-Edge design, while Braava jet m6 is the floor cleaning robot designed to clean multiple rooms and large surfaces with advanced navigation features and mapping. Together, the two robots can use the Imprint Link Technology to communicate with each other and coordinate the operations of vacuuming and washing the floor, without any effort on the part of the user.
iRobot Roomba s9 + and Braava Jet m6
Roomba s9 + boasts a new and powerful cleaning system whose suction power is 40 times higher than that of the previous generation. When Roomba s9 + detects the presence of a carpet, it automatically activates the Power Boost technology to increase the suction power and capture dust and dirt trapped in its fibers. The patented iAdapt 3.0 navigation system with vSLAM technology helps Roomba s9 + to efficiently navigate within the home, keeping track of where it has already passed and where it is still to be cleaned. A new advanced 3D sensor constantly analyzes what is in front of the robot with a frequency of 25 times per second to help Roomba s9 + memorize the layout of the house, offering users the possibility to choose which rooms to clean and when.
Cleanings can be scheduled with the iRobot HOME app or started by simply pressing the CLEAN button. Users can also start cleaning with voice commands if the robot is connected to a device compatible with Alexa or Google Assistant. Roomba s9 + integrates the first and only anti-allergen system (Anti-Allergen System) for robots, able to trap and capture pollen and other allergens, preventing them from escaping the robot or its Clean Base. The vacuum cleaner includes a high-efficiency filter (High-Efficiency Filter) that captures 99% of allergens such as mold, pollen and dust mites.
Once cleaning is complete, Roomba s9 + returns to the Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal to recharge and automatically empty its contents into a disposable bag, trapping dust and dirt. The charging station with Clean Base automatic emptying system houses 30 full powder containers, allowing users to forget about house cleaning for several weeks.
The Roomba s9 + robot vacuum cleaner with Clean Base Automatic Dirt Disposal guarantees the deepest clean ever thanks to an advanced 3D sensor for storing the rooms, a more powerful suction motor and the PerfectEdge technology, which uses a double brush in rubber, 30% wider, and a specially designed corner brush. Each of the two rubber counter-rotating brushes has a tread capable of constantly adhering to the surfaces to be cleaned, from floors to carpets, adjusting and flexing as needed to collect all forms of dirt, from small particles of dust, to hair and hair of domestic animals, up to larger crumbs. The specially designed corner brush, on the other hand, uses five inclined arms to collect dirt in the corners and along the walls, taking it to the path of the robot so that it can be vacuumed.
The Braava jet m6 scrubber robot guarantees clean floors throughout the house. Users simply plug in the chosen cloth – two types: one for dry cleaning and one for water washing – and the robot will do the rest. Like Roomba s9 +, Braava jet m6 uses the iAdapt 3.0 intelligent navigation system with vSLAM technology to define the complete layout of the house, giving users the freedom to choose which rooms to clean and when. The robot can be programmed using the iRobot HOME app or activated simply by pressing the CLEAN button. Users can also start cleaning with voice commands if the robot is connected to devices compatible with Alexa or Google Assistant. Ideal for floors such as parquet, tiles and stone, Braava jet m6 is characterized by the Maximized-Edge design that helps the robot to clean perfectly even in the corners and along the edges. Taking advantage of an advanced navigation system, the robot cleans following logical paths as it moves around furniture, carpets and other obstacles.
If the battery is about to run out before cleaning is complete, it automatically returns to recharge and then resumes cleaning until the job is completed. In Water Washing mode, the Precision Jet Spray and the dedicated cloth allow the robot to remove dirt (
