Xiaomi has announced Mi Robot Vacuum, its latest Mi Ecosystem product. The device has been developed by Mi Ecosystem company Rockrobo. Mi Robot Vacuum is an intelligent robot with Laser Distance Sensor (LDS). The LDS feature allows Mi Robot Vacuum to scan its surroundings 360 degrees, 1,800 times per second. There’s also Simultaneous Localization and Mapping (SLAM) algorithm, which enables the device to map out how the house is laid out and calculate the best cleaning path. Xiaomi’s Mi Robot Vacuum is equipped with 12 sensors.
Xiaomi Mi Robot Vacuum integrates with the Mi Home app and allows users to control Mi Robot Vacuum remotely. The main brush in Mi Robot Vacuum automatically adjusts height to create tight seal with floor for dirt pick-up on uneven surfaces. It maintains 1cm distance from walls for the side brush to effectively clean near walls. There’s a 5,200 mAh battery, which the company claims will provide 2.5 hours of cleaning. Mi Robot Vacuum will be available in China starting September 6. It will retail for 1699 yuan ( Rs 17,000 approx) on Mi.com and at Mi Home stores in China.
