Roomba 980: A new robotic vacuum cleaner that use a camera to map your house. this new iRobot’s robotic vacuum line-up points to keep your furniture and walls dent-free, as it uses its web connection and camera to build a map of your house.
Roomba 980 is examined as iRobot’s most capable and best cleaning robotic vacuum cleaner to date. It is the first Roomba to merge adaptive navigation with visual localization, increased cleaning power on carpets and cloud-connected app control, helping people to keep cleaner floors throughout the entire house at the push of a button.
a vacuum cleaner can now see around the room and along with its other onboard sensors, It build a map of its environment before launching into its cleaning routine work.
The camera is a low-res version, used only to give it the ability to detect shapes and objects in the surroundings and the camera is not for spying on you, which would be quite freaky.
Roomba 980 equipped with sensors, allowing it to adjust its cleaning method to avoid random blocks or recently moved items of furniture. The device knows what type of surface it is trundling over and automatically doubling its suction power when it passes over carpets, and iRobot alleged that it is also able to detect particularly large piles of dirt.
